Relationships never crumble in a day, it’s a slow fade process and the signs are always clear to the discerning.
Often times we choose to ignore the warning lights and clutch at straws in the hope of salvaging what we once had.
Psychologist and behavioral expert Honey Langcaster James shares her advice on how to identify if you’re involved in an unhealthy relationship dynamic.
1. Your partner treats you much better in public
Behind closed doors your partner is either rude, grumpy, always busy, emotionally unavailable or even overtly critical and hostile towards you, yet in front of others or outside the home they treat you much better.
This suggests that their image matters more to them than you do, and they know their behavior towards you is wrong. They’re treating you with disrespect when they think they can get away with it.
