Being in a toxic relationship can take a lot from you, both mentally and emotionally. Such kinds of relationships have a way of making you feel negative and defeated all the time. It is as if you cannot do anything right at all, and no matter how much you invest in the relationship, it is never enough.

The things you feel in a toxic relationship can have serious repercussions when it comes to your mental health, peace, and confidence.

There is a rise of toxic people in our world so there is a rise in toxic relationships.

Unfortunately, many of us have experienced the signs of a toxic relationship at least once. You could even be in one right now!

We question how they can be avoided and maybe even if we are the toxic person. We ask ourselves why, after experiencing past toxic relationships, do we continue to have them?

Why are we vulnerable to the lure of toxic and unhealthy relationships? Do we possess some magnetic force that pulls us toward toxic love and toxic people?

Unhealthy relationships pop up in our personal and professional lives.

Every couple goes through relationship problems but toxic and unhealthy relationships are different.

And the one major thing to note is that you are consistently being brought down and feel used by this person. You feel taken advantage of and angry not only at them but at yourself.

But, why do we seek them out?

The tendency to unconsciously seek out toxic relationships usually starts with past negative experiences when we are children and might carry on throughout our lives.

They can be become so deeply ingrained in the way we think and feel that we do not realize we are steeped in toxicity.

How so? In a toxic relationship, you do not bring up how you feel.

Maybe you do not want the person to be angry because they hold some sort of power over you, or you are holding on to the dream that one day they will wake up, realize their transgressions and make good.

That most likely will never happen unless they come to some sort of realization that they are toxic in a relationship. An important note to make is not to sink down to some sort of passive-aggressive level with them.
