Have you experienced, or are you experiencing any of these behaviors in your relationship?
Your partner breaks stuff (or threatens to) when they are mad
Your partner controls your spending
Your partner makes fun of you and puts you down in front of other people
Your partner threatens to hurt your pets, your children, your family when angry at you
Your partner heavily pressures you, forces you or guilts you into doing sexual things you do not want to do
Your partner criticizes you
Your partner may tell you that this behavior is YOUR fault. This is NOT true.
It can take many attempts to leave an unhealthy relationship for good.
Often people find themselves in unhealthy relationships because they didn’t have anyone to model what was healthy.
They may also have trauma from their past that they have internalized as their fault, an unhealthy relationship can feel familiar and we end up repeating the relationship that we grew up with because we believe it can be different for us.
Humans tend to recreate that parent child bond.
If you feel unsafe, or feel like you can’t make your own decisions, please reach out. We have therapists who are specially trained in unhealthy relationships and helping to unravel the damage done in these relationships.
