Red Lights of an Abusive Relationship
Does the other person in the relationship:
- Put you down?
- Get extremely jealous or possessive?
- Constantly check up on you?
- Tell you how to dress?
- Try to control what you do and who you see?
- Have big mood swings?
- Make you feel nervous (like you are walking on eggshells)?
- Criticize you?
- Threaten to hurt you?
Abuse always escalates, and it rarely gets better. If you experience any of these things, you may be involved in an unhealthy relationship.
Knowing these warning signs can help act as "red lights" in your relationship. You can stop and figure out if your relationship is abusive before things get out of control.
Not all of these signs will be in every abusive relationship. If one or more of these warning signs exist in your relationship, it doesn't necessarily mean that your relationship is abusive, but your relationship may not be as healthy as you deserve it to be.
