It's no wonder — you're both still growing and changing every day.
You might seem perfect for each other at first, but that can change.
But even if you know that the person hurting you loves you, it is not healthy.
No one deserves to be hit, shoved, or forced into anything they don't want to do.
So someone who has lived around violent or disrespectful behavior may not have learned how to treat others with kindness and respect or how to expect the same treatment.
Think about the qualities you value in a friendship and see how they match up with the ingredients of a healthy relationship.
Work on developing those good qualities in yourself — they make you a lot more attractive to others.
Whether you're single or in a relationship, remember that it's good to be choosy about who you get close to.
If you're still waiting, take your time and get to know plenty of people.
