relationships can be difficult to navigate.
Every relationship is unique, and a person might be attracted to another person for many physical or emotional reasons. It’s important to know the good or bad characteristics of a person, and be able to determine if a relationship is unhealthy or healthy.
A partner should support your positive endeavors, and encourage you to seek support from family and friends. A partner should never harm you physically or emotionally. Ongoing and consistent communication is extremely important in any type of relationship. Miscommunication often happens over text/phone call, so oftentimes it is best to communicate important information face to face.
Breakups: Breakups can be a difficult situation to navigate for all partners involved. A person might feel jealous, angry, sad, depressed, or maybe just okay after a breakup has happened. Sometimes, a breakup can be a positive thing and allow all persons to grow separately outside of the relationship. Most importantly, if a breakup has happened, all parties involved should respect the emotional and physical boundaries that are set by each person.
Sometimes it’s hard to tell if a relationship is unhealthy or healthy. But, abusive behaviors are never okay in any relationship.
If you think you are in an abusive relationship, there are many resources available.
