3. You’re unable to enjoy good moments with them
Every day brings another challenge. It seems as though they are always raising gripes about you.
Their attempt to control your behavior is an attempt to control your happiness.
4. You’re not comfortable being yourself around them
You do not feel free to speak your mind. You have to put on a different face just to be accepted by that person.
Then, you realize that you do not even recognize yourself anymore.
5. They don’t allow you to grow and change
Whenever you aim to grow and improve yourself, the other person responds with mockery and disbelief. There is no encouragement or support for your efforts.
Instead, they keep you stuck in old judgments insisting that you will never be any different than you are now.
If you are experiencing even just one of these signs, check in with yourself to see if the relationship is doing more damage than good.
We all deserve healthy relationships but we won’t get them if we’re stuck in unhealthy ones.
“You don’t ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life.”
Stay as far away as you can from toxic relationships. Most of the time, people do not get involved in a toxic relationship knowingly. So, the moment you realize that your relationship is not a healthy one, SHUT. IT. DOWN. Breaking up with your partner will be tough, but healthy for you in the long run. Always remember, that you deserve much better.
