TED Circle February - How We Love

https://www.ted.com/talks/katie_hood_the_difference_between_healthy_and_unhealthy_love
In a talk about understanding and practicing the art of healthy relationships, Katie Hood reveals the five signs you might be in an unhealthy relationship -- with a romantic partner, a friend, a family member -- and shares the things you can do every day to love with respect, kindness and joy. "While love is an instinct and an emotion, the ability to love better is a skill we can all build and improve on over time," she says.

Talking points

  • What is your response to the spectrums of healthy-to-unhealthy behaviors that Hood describes? (e.g. exhilarating-to-intense, independent-to-isolating, flirtatious-to-jealous, encouraging-to-belittling, steady-to-volatile)
  • In what instances have you experienced the early warning signs of unhealthy love? Did you realize it at the time? If so, how? If not, what helped you realize it?
  • What aspects of your life have/could improve because of experiencing healthy love?
  • How do you think young people should be taught the difference between healthy and unhealthy love?
