Bumps and rough patches are a part of all healthy relationships. But some areas have to be steered clear of. Make sure your relationship doesn’t run into any of these problem areas.

1. The jealousy bump.

Avoid getting jealous if you can help it. True love has no place for jealousy and mistrust.

2. Being too controlling.

A controlling, one-sided relationship never works out. Don’t try to control your partner decisions, actions and views, even if you think you have their best interests at heart.

3. Avoid drama.

Do not prolong fights. Do not say things you don’t mean. Do not act wounded and betrayed for no reason. Drama is great on the big screen. Not so much in real-life relationships.

4. Losing trust.

This is one relationship bump that can’t be gotten over. Trust, once lost, is hard to regain.

5. Letting anger overpower love.

Don’t let your anger get the better of you. This is one bump that’s hard to recover from. Things said in anger can ruin the relationship forever.

6. Getting insecure.

Once you start getting insecure about yourself and the relationship, all is lost. To be in a healthy relationship, you have to be secure in your love, and have self confidence. You cannot be second guessing your partner’s love for you all the time.

7. Hitting below the belt.

Fights happen. And sometimes they get nasty. But there are some things you never say, no matter what. Personal attacks about your partner’s looks, family or insecurities, are a big no-no.

8. Emotional distance.

Once emotional distance between partners starts growing, there is no turning back. It kills any love left in the relationship. Don’t let that happen to you.

9. Infidelity.

Unfaithfulness to your partner can’t be gotten over. Your partner will never trust you again. And even if you stay together, you won’t be together in spirit.
