Basic Needs In Relationships (taken from http://www.eqi.org)

If you have been involved in emotionally abusive relationships, you may not have a clear idea of what a healthy relationship is like.

  • The need for good will from others
  • The need for emotional support
  • The need to be heard by the other and to be responded to with respect and acceptance
  • The need to have your own view, even if others have a different view
  • The need to have your feelings and experience acknowledged as real
  • The need to receive a sincere apology for any jokes or actions you find offensive
  • The need for clear, honest and informative answers to questions about what affects you
  • The need to for freedom from accusation, interrogation and blame
  • The need to live free from criticism and judgment
  • The need to have your work and your interests respected
  • The need for encouragement
  • The need for freedom from emotional and physical threat
  • The need for freedom from angry outbursts and rage
  • The need for freedom from labels which devalue you
  • The need to be respectfully asked rather than ordered
  • The need to have your final decisions accepted
