How To Identify An Unhealthy Relationship

It is very important to remember that relationships can be complicated, unhealthy, and even unsafe. Understanding the truth about unhealthy relationships will help you decide if yours is good for you or not, Unfortunately, too many young women are in relationships that involve a loss of sexual as well as reproductive control. Knowing what this looks like can help you identify when something is not right in your own relationship. 


 Unhealthy relationships are you often based on abuse of power and control, not equality and respect. During the early stages of any abusive relationship, you may not think the unhealthy behaviors are in anyway a big deal. Not withstanding possessiveness, insults, jealous accusations, yelling, humiliation, pulling hair, pushing or any other negative, physical or verbal abusive behaviors, are demonstrations of power and control abuse. 

You should always remember that you deserve to be respected and loved. There is no excuse for abuse of any kind in a healthy relationship. If you believe your relationship is slightly unhealthy, it is important to think about your safety before it is too late. Consider these points as you move forward with the break up :
