8 Signs That You Are In A Very Unhealthy Relationship

Stop the cycle of abuse.

Domestive abuse is a widepread problem. Each year, millions of people are victims of physical and/or emotional abuse at the hands of their significant others. And yet people in abusive relationship aren't always aware that what they're experiencing qualifies as abuse.

Which is why Beauty Cares, a non-profit organization that seeks to end the cycle of domestic abuse, created this infographic listing 8 characteristic signs of an abusive relationship.

It's worth noting that abuse doesn't necessarily have to be physical in nature. "Domestic abuse and teen dating violence also includes mental and emotional abuse, and an abusive person can make you feel afraid or even ruin your life without ever laying on a hand on you," the organization notes on their website. "Domestic abuse is a pattern of behavior enabling one person to gain power and control over another."

The people involved also don't have to live together: "[M]any teens and women believe domestic violence is only physical abuse between two people who live together – an extremely dangerous misconception that puts millions of lives at risk."

Read the list below and share it. This is information is important. 

Here's the infographic translated into other languages.
