The Number One Sign of a Toxic Relationship
The purpose of this article is to show you how can quickly and easily see if you’re in a toxic relationship.
The term itself is interchangeable. I could just as easily refer to these relationships as unhealthy relationships or emotionally abusive relationships.
After years of talking to women from all over the world, I wanted to talk about this subject because I observed that these destructive and heartbreaking relationships all had one factor that ultimately made them turn toxic… even if the relationship started out well.
How do you define a toxic relationship?
I define toxic relationships as a relationship dynamic where one or both people feel dramatically worse about themselves, their life, and their possibilities as a result of having this relationship in their life.
People in toxic relationships often describe it as feeling like the relationship “sucked their soul out” or “killed their self-esteem and/or well-being.” Ways to tell you’re in a toxic relationship often include:
- Feeling like you have to “walk on eggshells” around the other person
- Feeling like no matter what, you can’t please the other person
- Feeling like the other person frequently blames you for making them upset or unhappy
- Feeling like they have to swallow their own emotions and feelings in order to “keep the peace”
