It Feels Like Love, But What Is Love?
It's normal to look through rose-colored lenses in the early stages of a relationship. However, for some people, those rose-colored glasses turn into blinders and you can’t see that a relationship isn't where it should be. Learn to practice love is in a healthy relationship!
What's an Unhealthy Relationship?
If you were raised in a home where your parents fought a lot, it can almost seem normal or OK, but it’s not! Even though you might feel bad or feel for someone who's been mistreated, you need to take care of yourself - it's not healthy to stay in a relationship that involves abusive behavior of any kind.
Ask yourself, does my boyfriend or girlfriend:
It can be tempting to misinterpret violence, possessiveness, or anger as an expression of love; however, even if you know they love you underneath it all, it is not healthy. No one deserves to be hit, shoved, or forced to do things they don’t want to do.
Every relationship has its challenges. Instead of using the signs that you’re in a healthy relationship as a way to judge yourself and your partner, use them as a guide to growth. After all, relationship success is a part of self-improvement success!
