Being in a bad relationship is a bit like having an illness; you can try to deny it all you want, but the symptoms will start popping up against your will. When you’re unhappy with your partner that changes the way your brain works, and even the chemistry of your body. It’s just like when you’re extremely happy with somebody; you notice changes happening in your mind and body—you probably feel more relaxed and more positive. The state of your relationship affects the way you behave, what you say and even what you think. You can try to fool yourself all you want, but when you’re not in the right relationship, the signs will find a way to sneak out and all your friends can see and hear it. On that note, here are phrases you’ll hear yourself say when you’re in a bad relationship.


Every relationship has its problems

Sure, but only couples who are facing an insurmountable and unreasonable amount of problems rely on the saying, “Every relationship has its problems.” No couple is perfect, but healthy couples’ problems are manageable enough that they aren’t really on their minds when they’re out having drinks with friends, and they wouldn’t say this sentence.
