We’ve all been in them, and they can take over our life. They’re bad relationships, and they’re horrible for us, our health, and our well being.
How can you tell if the relationship that you’re in is, indeed, a bad relationship, or if you’re just going through a rough patch?
Is your partner too controlling of yourself, your actions, and what you do with your life? It can be a big sign of a very bad relationship – why? Well, your life is your own, not anyone else’s, and while you have to compromise on some things, one person cannot control two.
Often, women don’t know that they’re being controlling, instead looking to help their partner, and give them the most in life. It’s an odd sort of thing, but they don’t mean it many times.
Arguing Over Little Things:
It’s not a bad thing to argue, as it can be helpful to your relationship… but when you’re arguing over forks, spoons, and mail, you know you have issues in your relationship, and in your life.
Sometimes, little arguments are because of stress, pressure, or money – and this is all understandable. But if arguments pop up all the time, for no reason, it could be a sign that you’re both unhappy.
Lack of Support
Do you feel like your partner isn’t there for you emotionally? This is a loaded question, and some may not be able to even think about answering it – but it is an important question to ask.
If you’re not getting the support you truly need from your partner, then there is something wrong. While you must be realistic in your dreams, hopes, and ambitions, you also deserve support and encouragement from your partner, who is there for you. If you’re not getting it, you’re missing something.
General Unhappiness in your Relationship
Sit and think about it – does your partner make you happy? Maybe they don’t make you happy all of the time, but at least most of the time? Can you laugh with them like no one else? Do you feel special thinking about them, and do they truly make you feel good about yourself?
If not, then there’s a problem. You should feel content with your relationship, and your partner. If you don’t, maybe it’s time to try something different.
Emotional or Physical Abuse
The number one sign of a bad relationship is abuse – and I don’t care if you are a man. If your girlfriend or wife is putting you down, toying with your emotions, making you jealous, or if she gets physically violent (Throwing things, punching, kicking), there is something wrong.
There is nothing wrong with leaving a relationship because this sort of abuse is going on, and yes, it is called abuse – don’t think of it any other way. It doesn’t matter how big you are, or strong you feel. If you’re not being treated right, you need a change.
