Verbal, emotional, or physical abuse should never be normalized in a relationship. These behaviors are harmful and can have long-lasting negative effects.
Relationships should ideally be based on mutual respect and equality. Normalizing imbalances of power can lead to one partner feeling subordinate or unheard.
Each person has their own needs and aspirations. Normalizing the idea that one partner's needs are more important than the other's can lead to dissatisfaction and unhappiness.
Normalizing infidelity can erode trust and emotional intimacy within a relationship. Faithfulness and loyalty are usually considered important for a healthy partnership.
Ignoring or avoiding important discussions through stonewalling or silent treatment can hinder conflict resolution and emotional bonding.
Normalizing controlling behaviour can limit personal growth within the relationship. Healthy relationships allow individuals to be themselves without excessive control from their partner.
