Unhealthy dating relationships
Ever heard about how it's hard for someone to love you when you don't love yourself?
Relationships in dating and courtship stage are beautiful and they ought to be nurtured and enjoyed.
Meanwhile, 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.
When a boyfriend or girlfriend uses verbal insults, mean language, nasty putdowns, gets physical by hitting or slapping, or forces someone into sexual activity, it's a sign of verbal, emotional, or physical abuse.
Your girlfriend or boyfriend isn't there to make you feel good about yourself if you can't do that on your own.
Focus on being happy with yourself, and don't take on the responsibility of worrying about someone else's happiness.Think about the qualities you value in a friendship and see how they match up with the ingredients of a healthy relationship.
