Healthy relationships don’t cause you physical or emotional harm

Love doesn’t hurt. Relationships, both romantic and platonic, are supposed to enrich your life.  If a relationship is causing you stress, upset, or physical harm, than it isn’t healthy.  A healthy relationship should bring much more joy and happiness to your life than any of the small moments of disagreement or upset.  We often hear “love hurts”, but the truth is, heartbreak hurts, loving someone who doesn’t love you back hurts, or loving the wrong person hurts.  The act of love itself does not hurt.  Love doesn’t hurt.

On occasion, love, power, attraction and passion get confused.  You may find yourself in an unhealthy and harmful relationship without knowing quite how you got there.  This February, in the run up to Valentines Day, we are sharing ‘14 Truths About Love’
