We all go through different kinds of relationships in our lives. Some of those relationships are healthy and properly functioning and the rest of them are either toxic or just too full of conflict.
Everyone wants a healthy functioning relationship, but most people are not even aware of what that really even entails. There is a lot more to it than you’d think and just because you aren’t about to tear one another’s heads off doesn’t mean things are functioning properly. Below I am going to go over what signs you might notice that will indicate you are exactly where you need to be.
