The differences between healthy vs unhealthy relationships

Junior Max Cohen stated, “I think that a healthy relationship has trust, communication and a little bit of luck.”

According to The Hotline, in a healthy relationship each person feels supported and connected, yet can still be independent. The two major components of a healthy relationship were described as boundaries and communication.

NMBreakThroughs explains that with a healthy relationship, people can improve in the following areas; healing, behavior, sense of purpose and a longer life with less stress.

Though a healthy relationship can ease stress, an unhealthy relationship can do the opposite.

In the annual Sex and Dating Survey, five percent of Ventura High School students said they have been verbally abused in a relationship. With this statistic, one may wonder, “how does verbal abuse affect the average teen?”

Unhealthy relationships can create long and short term negative effects, especially for developing teens.

As stated by the Utah Education Network, students tend to do poorly in school and report an increase in binge drinking, suicide attempts and physical fighting while in an unhealthy relationship. An unhealthy relationship can also affect ones future relationships, as the victims of an unhealthy relationship may adopt their partners violent patterns and habits.
