Starting a new relationship can be very exciting and happy for you and your partner, but it can also be tricky. You are two strangers, who don’t know a lot about each other yet, but you try to get acquainted as fast as possible. I can tell you from now that everything wrong in your relationship will show its marks from the very first steps. No one can entirely hide their true selves. These small signs are the ones that you should not ignore and by any means do not try to overlook or justify. Being single again is less scary than being in a disfunctional and abusing relationship.
1. Stop justifying them
If their actions tell one story, you can’t start saying a new one just because you don’t want to see the truth. You deserve the truth and that’s what you should always fight for.
2. Not talking things through
When problems and small misunderstandings appear, they are bound to get bigger and more serious if you don’t talk them out. Resolve anything no matter how small you think it may be.
3. Testing your boundaries
You should always set your boundaries and not let anyone cross them. Even when you love your partner to the moon and back, your boundaries should always be valued by them.
4. Massive sense of entitlement
You are not required to do things for your partner all the time. You are not their maid or their cook or their soft pillow. You are not there to serve them, but to have a good time with them and share parts of your life.
