I have been a therapist for a long time and every time I see individuals or couples who come to counseling when the relationship is in trouble or the individual has a broken heart, I can’t help but feel sad and empathic with them. I often ask myself, there must be something that people could learn to help them protect, avoid or identify the not-so-good behaviors or “red flags” for themselves before the heartache and loneliness come to play.
There are so many people of all ages who enter into relationships each day and see, but chose not to acknowledge, that something is not quite right with “mister or miss right.” The warning signs or “red flags” staring them in the face, but they may chose to ignore them or find excuses to not see them.
Many people come to counseling to help them work on the hurt after the damage has been done.
Here are some of the red flags you must acknowledge and I highly encourage you start to run when you see them and don’t look back, run…run…..
