Healthy Relationships


KIAH: Hey, my name’s Kiah, and I’m a blackfella
from Victoria. I just want to tell you about me and this
guy I’ve been hanging with. His name’s Scott, and I love him. Well, I think I love him. It’s just that, umm, it’s kind of gone
a bit weird lately. So, I first met him when I was playing netball,
right. We were at the netball and football carnival,
which was in town last October. He’s not Koori, but he’s like, best mates
with my cus Alice’s boyfriend. Scott is so hot. They reckon he’s had a six-pack since forever, and he has these amazing blue eyes, like I can’t even. Jasmine said he couldn’t stop lookin’
at me, and since I’ve sorted my eyebrows out, the
girls reckon I’m lookin’ pretty fierce. I didn’t talk to him or anything, but Scott
found me on Instagram and DM’d me. We started Snapchatting each other every day
and we got our streak up to like, 66. Then when we’d meet up he’d be real charming,
like call me bae and was always holding my hand and saying how
pretty I am. One day though, Scott saw me hanging with
my brother Danny and a couple of our cousins. We’ve got the biggest mob, hey, so there’s
always family around. These fellas were travelling through town,
so Danny and I went back to the park to just hang with them. The next time I saw Scott though, he was being
quiet and sooky, asking why I was hanging out with the other
guys. I tried to tell him about family, but he didn’t
want to hear it. He said that I should change my Instagram
to private. He reckons too many guys are liking my pics
and says that I should delete them. Same with any guys on my Snapchat, which I
don’t think is fair, but Scott’s all like, if I loved him, I’d
do it. And I really do love him. He’s always buying me chocolate and saying
that he loves me. So I did. He was cool for a bit, but then he started
throwing shade at my friends. Reckoned they were annoying and stupid and that I shouldn’t hang out with them. He also started saying that he hated my clothes
and that I looked like a hoe when I wore my new gold
hoops. Then, just a couple of weeks ago, Scott and
I had a full on fight outside my aunty’s house. It started cos Scott reckoned my Mum and dad
were hopeless, cos they were always getting me to look after
my little brothers. I told him I liked doing it, but he just kept
on at me, saying I wasn’t spending enough time with
him. Jasmine was across the road and she saw us
fighting. I was so shamed that I didn’t even reply
when she sent me a text asking if I was okay. Jas is my BFF, but I just didn’t want to
talk about it. I feel like I’d cry if she asked me how
I was. I’m so upset and confused. I just don’t know what to think or do right
now. Hello? JAS: Oh, hey, you picked up! Hey, have you done that maths revision yet? I’m struggling, hey. KIAH: Yeah, same. JAS: So, I just wanna ask, like, are you alright,
sis? It’s just that I heard you and Scott yelling
the other day and you didn’t reply to my message, so I just
want to know that you’re alright. KIAH: Yeah. JAS: Like, I know you really like Scott. He’s hot and he’s funny and nice, but
me and Danny have heard how he’s been talking to you lately, and I just
don’t want you to feel bad, cos you know that you slay, right? Like, you should be feeling good all the time. KIAH: Thanks, Jas. JAS: Kiah, I love you. You’re my bestie, so please just talk to
me if you need to. VOICEOVER: It’s good to chat. Find someone you trust, like your family, friends or teachers to have
a yarn. For more information on where you can get
