Everyone behaves badly sometimes.

While we get frustrated or annoyed with the people around us, we don’t all react with unhealthy behaviours.

If you are seeing unhealthy signs in your own relationship, don’t ignore them. No relationship is perfect all the time, but the signs below are indications that it’s not going as well as it could. The more of them you have in a relationship, the more you should be worried.
