10 critical signs of an unhealthy relationship tell us that all is not well, although apparently everything looks hale and hearty. Each one of us wants our life to be perfect and in this rush sometimes forget the small little things that bind us in our relationship which we hold so preciously.
We often take our relationship for granted and realize the difference when it starts to turn sour and unhealthy; when the expected is not the outcome and the outcome is not expected.
These critical signs help us to understand our relationship better, points out to us the simple things we overlook and ignore, help us to be more patient and compassionate and exhibit empathy in our relationships and sometimes alerts us to think over again whether to continue with the relationship or to move apart.
Miscommunication or communication gap is the most common aspect nowadays in a relationship. A healthy relationship develops through healthy conversation between two people that helps them know each other better and develops instant connect between them.
Lack of respect for each other distances a couple and poses problem in the long run. It is very important in a relationship to respect and love each other as we respect ourselves and expect the same from our partner.
Lack of time for each other is very commonly seen nowadays. We get so busy with our profession and meeting targets and deadlines that we hardly take out time for our partner and realize it when it is quite late.
Expectations can be never ending and too much of it may be annoying sometimes. While expectation from your partner is quite natural in a healthy relationship but it must be realistic.
Comparing your partner with someone and demeaning him/her, pointing out demerits every now and then can distance him/her gradually. We must understand that each person is different from the other and each has some good quality. Instead of comparing, one must appreciate the good qualities of the partner.
Dishonesty is a very critical & unhealthy sign as a good relationship stands on the pillars of honesty and trust. There should be no compromise in this respect and the best way is to have open communication with the partner to understand where exactly the relationship stands.
Competition and jealousy are the two viruses which make path for an unhealthy relationship. Today life has become so fast that there is no end to goals and achievements. Constant comparisons and assessments of self and partner lead to competition and jealousy between partners leading to insecurity in a relationship.
Dominating and disregarding one’s partner continuously leads to unhealthy relationship. It has to be a relationship of mutual respect and understanding where one must give the other a chance to make his/her viewpoint and not thrust one’s opinion on the other forcefully.
Over possessiveness in any relationship can be really annoying and disturbing. It is quite natural to be possessive about your partner to some extent but too much of it may become choking and irritating for the other leading to an unhealthy relationship. One must give space to the other as everyone has a social life, friend circle, acquaintances and above all individuality.
Physical and verbal abuse is the worst signs of an unhealthy relationship and should not be tolerated under any circumstances. It gives a clear hint to seriously think of whether it is worth continuing the relationship.
