When something doesn’t feel right
If something doesn’t feel right in your relationship, it probably isn’t.
An abuser may say things like ‘I didn’t mean it’, ‘I was having a bad day’, ‘It only happened once’ to justify or excuse their hurtful behaviour. This might make you start doubting whether your concerns about your relationship are valid. If you’ve heard any of these before, it could be a sign of an unhealthy or controlling relationship. A healthy relationship should be a loving, respectful place with values like support, freedom, happiness, and consent at the centre.
