10 Appalling Signs You Are In A One-Sided Relationship

You’re in love, so you want to do anything you can to make your partner happy.

Trust me, I have been there. You’ve opened up your heart, and you’re excited to have a deep connection with this person who seems so great for you.

You find yourself being selflessly available to your partner 24/7, no matter what you already have planned.

When you’re in love, the only thing that matters is being with this person.

Once I remember skipping a class because my boyfriend wanted to go out to lunch.

I told him I was available and happy to join him. I didn’t consider my own obligations and priorities when he wanted to do something.

At the time, I didn’t realize I was setting the stage for a relationship that wasn’t healthy but one-sided love.

Maybe you see yourself in this scenario — willing to do most anything to spend time with your partner or win his or her affection and attention.

However, as time progresses, you realize that you are not getting the same time and attention you offer your partner.

You don’t see much effort coming from the other side that demonstrates your partner feels the same way that you do.

Could you be in a one-sided relationship?

12 Signs Of Emotionally Unavailable Women

Men and women want to experience a healthy, fruitful relationship with the person they love.

Relationships are the bonds that hold societies together. But being in a relationship is a complicated enterprise.

No two people are alike when it comes to sharing life experiences, or when it comes to falling in love.
We like to think we will fall in love with someone who can express their love in all the usual ways, but that’s not always the case.

Falling in love and being in a relationship is all about the mingling of energy and vibrations. Sometimes we cultivate a relationship with a person who doesn’t vibrate in the same energy field as we do.

Men are usually the emotionally unavailable culprits in a relationship, but millions of women have the same unavailable vibration.

Financial Abuse: Are You Being Controlled And Manipulated With Money?

In this post, you’ll learn all about financial abuse warning signs.

Money makes the world go ’round.

8 Signs of Narcissistic Abuse

Narcissistic Abuse

From the outside, narcissistic people look “normal.”

They’re often charming, outgoing and idolized by others simply because they appear so perfect.

But to you, they’re anything but perfect.

You’re never at ease around the narcissistic person, and you can’t pinpoint exactly why. You can’t reconcile the “perfect” image most people have of the narcissistic person with your experiences behind closed doors.

Worst of all, you feel like there’s no one you can talk to about your problem with this person. How can you think such things about a person who’s so admired by others?

Why Do Women Stay In Bad Relationships?

Why Do Women Stay In Abusive Relationships

From an outsider’s perspective, it seems pretty straightforward. If someone is abusing you, physically, verbally, or emotionally — you leave.

Why would you stay with someone who is causing you pain, making you afraid, or even damaging your children?

Why would you put up with such despicable, destructive behavior from the person who is supposed to love you the most?

It might seem clear to those who aren’t in an abusive relationship, but the reality is far from simple. Abusive relationships are like spider webs that trap the victim in a cycle of confusion, fear, hope, and despair. The complexity of these relationships is hard to understate.

The man who was once caring and charismatic has turned into a Dr. Jekell – Mr. Hyde whose behavior is unpredictable, manipulative, and even violent. The poison of abuse can be subtle and insidious at first, only to escalate as the victim becomes more compliant and fearful.

12 Surprising Forms Of Verbal Abuse

Verbal Abuse

What is a word?

According to Dictionary.com, a word is “a unit of language, consisting of one or more spoken sounds or their written representation, that functions as a principal carrier of meaning.”

Words have enormous power. As the “principle carriers of meaning,” words can lift us up or crush us.

They may be no more than sounds uttered from our mouths, but the intention behind the sounds can pack more joy or pain than the most loving touch or the cruelest physical blow.

Some people use words as subtle weapons to hurt, shame, or manipulate others. These people are verbal abusers and tend to attract people in their lives who are susceptible to their insidious and hurtful use of language.
