Being in an unhealthy relationship can be very confusing and isolating.
We have created some videos to highlight a few red flags of unhealthy behavior. There is also a list of resources if you or someone you know needs help getting out of an abusive situation.
People who abuse others may have learned this behavior from family members or other people in their life at a young age. They may have developed the behavior out of a feeling of powerlessness at some point in their life, so they abuse others in order to regain some sense of control. Regardless of how someone developed this behavior, it is often acted out in an effort to exert power or control over another person. When someone abuses someone else, they are using threatening behaviors to manipulate the other person into doing what they want. Abuse is often present in unhealthy relationships.
