Yes, holding a grudge against your partner is unhealthy, not only for your relationship but also for you.
Holding grudges for a long time can result in building up anger, distress, doubt and a lot of other negative feelings that can make you unhappy and stressed.
You should be able to communicate your feelings without being afraid of negative consequences or abuse.
Remember the rules for a healthy relationship apply to hook-ups, too.
Keep these questions in mind: Hooking up is a broad term, but generally it refers to casual encounters between people who can be friends but don’t have to be.
Remember that feeling isolated and no one else liking your partner can be warning signs of an unhealthy or abusive relationship.
Abuse can affect all types of relationships, not just long-term or committed relationships. Dating abuse and relationship issues can be hard topics to discuss, but in our experience, getting support can be really helpful. Here at loveisrespect, we have trained peer advocates who are friendly, non-judgmental and available 24/7.
To maintain a healthy relationship, you need to be able to forgive your partner for their past mistakes. Try to remember: being with a person you cannot forgive is not going to do either of you any good.
Dating someone your family doesn’t like can be really hard.
