With that said, you need to know that there are things called red flags which are indicators of a bad or even toxic relationship. Don’t worry we are here to help you understand what red flags are.

Everyone knows that relationships aren’t perfect. This is because you are simply two people coming together to build something. You are also two people with different mindsets, beliefs, and even cultures. This leaves room for mistakes, miscommunication, and even arguments. Now, these aren’t really red flags. These are simply differences that you and your partner need to work through and it can be done. However, red flags are things that you can’t and shouldn’t look past. Red flags are things that you should never compromise on no matter how much you love your partner. For example, a red flag can be disrespect.

Regardless of what you are going through with your partner, you should never allow them to disrespect you or break your morals. Another red flag could be miss treatment. Being treated poorly isn’t love and you should never stand for it. You see the thing with red flags is that it is different in every relationship. So you can’t really expect to find someone who has been through what you are going through. Instead, you need to trust your gut feeling and try to be honest with yourself. Remember that even though you love your partner, you need to love yourself more.
