Treated Like an Equal

Does your partner belittle you, put you down, or make you feel like you couldnīt survive without him or her? Thatīs a sure sign of an unhealthy relationship. Healthy partners are both self sufficient and help each other be the best they can be.

If for example your partner was worried about you leaving, one way to ensure that you wouldnīt leave would be to convince you that you werenīt *able* to leave, that you could never live without him or her.

Thatīs not healthy. You should be in the relationship because you *want* to be, not because youīre afraid to leave.
