Oh thanks for asking, I'm trying to study for a maths test tomorrow but I'm really struggling.
Clara met James in the school library one afternoon
I'm never going to get this work done
Hey are you okay? You look really stressed - anything I can do to help?
I got 85% on the maths test! I thought i was going to fail!
He encouraged and pushed her to do her best in everything and Clara began to have a stronger sense of purpose at school and she became more confident in her abilities.
He started to help Clara with her schoolwork almost every afternoon and they became really good friends.
Nah Clara I always thought you were going to do good. You just need to have more faith in yourself!
Months go by and Clara and James become closer and closer.The were both really open with each other about everything one day James tells Clara that he has feelings for her and asks if she wants to go out with him.
They were so honest and truthful in their relationship already, James felt comfortable enough to express his true feelings to Clara.
Aww James I actually feel the same way! I would love to.
Hey Clara, we've gotten really close and I've got feelings for you - i was wondering if you wanted to go out with me?
They always respected each others choices, opinions, boundaries and decisions - no matter what.
Because they always respected each other's personal choices, they both always felt safe and comfortable around each other and they never felt they had to worry about pleasing the other person or feeling pressured to do something they didn't want to
Hey babe do you want to go somewhere more private...?
Yes of course! Let me know if I can help with anything.
Clara is it ok if we just stay here with our friends? I'm not really feeling that great tonight.
Aw babe I'm so sorry you feel that way. Why don't we see your friends tomorrow instead and we'll reschedule a time with Luke and Sarah.
We're always hanging out with your friends. I never see mine anymore.
Whenever problems came up they always worked together to compromise and find effective solutions that made both of them happy
Hey do you want to go see Luke and Sarah tomorrow?
They had a very fair relationship where they both had an equal say and no one had all the control. This meant they always had equal time with both their friends, family, etc.
I love you too.
I love you.
They were encouraging, truthful, respectful and had equal say and controlthese attributes made their relationship beneficial to all aspects of their health and wellbeing
