The Difference Between Healthy and Unhealthy Love

In her poignant TED Talk, Katie Hood, CEO of the One Love Foundation, an organization that aims to educate young people on the topic of love, explains that unhealthy love is something all of us will experience in our lifetime. Unhealthy love can manifest itself in different types of relationships, such as romantic relationships, friendships and family relationships, and is not limited to outright psychological or physical violence. Recognizing the signs of unhealthy love is key when trying to prevent relationship abuse.

Fortunately, healthy love is a skill that we can all learn and practice. Not only will practicing healthy love improve your life, it will also contribute to the betterment of the lives of those who matter most to you!
