Unscramble the Blue Letters

KH: If you ask me, isolation is one of the most frequently missed and misunderstood signs of unhealthy love. Why? Because every new rltiaeohsnip starts out with this ientsne desire to spend time together, it's easy to miss when something shifts. Isolation creeps in when your new boyfriend or girlfriend starts pulling you away from your friends and family, your support system, and tethering you more tightly to them. They might say things like, "Why do you hang out with them? They're such losers" about your best frenids, or, "They want us to break up. They're ttalloy against us" about your family. Isolation is about swnoig sdees of doubt about everyone from your prerelationship life. Healthy love ilcdnues independence, two people who love sedpning time together but who stay connected to the people and activities they cared about before. While at first you might spned every waking minute together, over time maintaining independence is key. You do this by making plans with friends and sictknig to them and encouraging your partner to do the same.

Original Text

KH: If you ask me, isolation is one of the most frequently missed and misunderstood signs of unhealthy love. Why? Because every new relationship starts out with this intense desire to spend time together, it's easy to miss when something shifts. Isolation creeps in when your new boyfriend or girlfriend starts pulling you away from your friends and family, your support system, and tethering you more tightly to them. They might say things like, "Why do you hang out with them? They're such losers" about your best friends, or, "They want us to break up. They're totally against us" about your family. Isolation is about sowing seeds of doubt about everyone from your prerelationship life. Healthy love includes independence, two people who love spending time together but who stay connected to the people and activities they cared about before. While at first you might spend every waking minute together, over time maintaining independence is key. You do this by making plans with friends and sticking to them and encouraging your partner to do the same.
