FRIENDSHIP: GREEN FLAGS VS RED FLAGS
You may have heard the terms ‘red flag’ and ‘green flag’ used to describe both friendships and relationships. But what do these terms actually mean? Like a red traffic light or a red card in a sporting match, a red flag typically signifies a reason to stop. In a relationship context, they serve as a warning sign that it is highly unlikely that you will be able to have a healthy and conflict-free friendship or relationship with this person. Conversely, green flags are the exact opposite and signify reasons to proceed. They are positive traits that indicate that a person can engage in a healthy, mature and supportive friendship or relationship.
The people you choose to surround yourself with play an important role in your success and happiness. Friendships provide the physical, emotional and social support we need as we go through the ups and downs that life throws our way. In the same way that great friends motivate, inspire, support and care for us on our journeys, there are toxic friendships that we may develop that drain our energy and hold us back from achieving our goals.
