It’s very easy to get into any of the unhealthy relationship dynamics shown in the models of Monday’s post. Honestly assess whether you have been in any and how you came to enter into them. How did you experience them as unhealthy? What impact did the dynamic have upon the relationship?
Equally it’s important to assess which of the unhealthy relationship behaviors you have exhibited in the past. Do you have a pattern of exhibiting the same unhealthy behaviors? What draws you to exhibit these behaviors? What advantages do you think at the time they will give you? Once you understand the answers to these questions ask yourself, what were the disadvantages and damaging effects upon the relationship as a result of these behaviors? How could you avoid them in future?
