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.
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.
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.
Even if your relationship is casual or you’ve only hooked up once, you can still experience abuse. You can chat with one of our advocates at any time of the day just by clicking the chat button, text us by sending “loveis” (capitalization does not matter) to 22522 or call us at 1-866-331-9474. So feel free to contact us anytime and know that we’ll keep our conversations completely confidential.

Remember that feeling isolated and no one else liking your partner can be warning signs of an unhealthy or abusive relationship.
Another possibility is that you and your partner are married.
That's right, all confessions are anonymous and no personal information is ever collected.
