Sometimes it may seem like everything in your relationship is alright, but you could be very wrong. Here are some signs to know when a relationship is no longer healthy anymore.

If you no longer trust your partner, and you feel like there is nothing you can do to fix it, you are probably right. Being with somebody who you have little trust for will never work out. How are you going to believe them when they tell you something? If they have lied to you about something before, it may be very hard to fix it. If your partner tells you they are going out somewhere, but your gut is telling you they’re elsewhere, it may be a sign that it is time to move on. You should not have one ounce of doubt of what your partner is doing when they are not with you.

While it may seem like constant insults between you and the person you’re with is completely normal, this isn’t the case. If your partner always insults you and belittles you, it is time to reevalute the relationship you’re in. Your partner should always shower you with compliments, not insults. They should always make you feel lucky to be with somebody who cares about you and love you. If they insult you and purposefully hurt your feelings, this can be a sign of an abusive relationship. An abusive relationship is something that is never okay.

Constantly arguing is always a bad sign. Never ending arguing in a relationship is a sign that can be overlooked. You may feel like that is normal because every couple fights. Yes, that is true because every couple does fight. But, if you are fighting over very little things every single day, it is a sign that your relationship is not healthy. Always remember that the good times should outweigh the bad, not the other way around.

Isolating yourself from your friends and family is another sign of an unhealthy relationship. If you are ditching your friends for your partner all the time, don’t be surprised when your friends are no longer there once your relationship is over. It is not good if the only person that you are ever with is your boyfriend or girlfriend. Your friends and family should be most important people in your life, along with your partner. Yes, it is good to spend time with the person you are in a relationship with, but when you are always cancelling on other important people in your life to be with one person all of the time it is an unhealthy relationship sign.

If your partner is always controlling everything that you do, it is time to move on. Just because they are with you, it doesn’t mean that they are allowed to dictate your life. It is also a warning sign of an abusive relationship. If they control every decision that you are supposed to make, you need to move on from them.

looking at your own relationship may seem like everything is alright with it. But, you should take a step back and evaluate your partner and how they treat you. Are they always good to you, can you fully trust them no matter what? If not, then it may be a sign that this relationship is no longer working.
