While love is often like a fairy-tale, not all relationships blossom that way. There are so many of us who face a hundred tumultuous situations in the lanes of love and it often leave us bruised and broken.
If you too are a victim of a toxic relationship, we are going precisely show you how to spot one. One of the most baffling mistakes is that some people don’t even realize that they are being trapped in a toxic connection. So, if you would like some respite and want to break free from one, here is what you need to know.
Are you good enough?
If you often feel plagued by thoughts like ‘Am I good enough?’, this might be a clear sign that you are a part of a toxic relationship because a relationship is about being equals.
Stop feeling this way. You do not need to be a people-pleaser all the time. This is why you should stand up for who you are and love yourself!
Abuse and hand-raising.
If your partner has ever raised their hand on you even if it was a rare moment of fury, be very wary. It is important to believe yourself and respect your dignity.
It is only when you respect yourself that you can command respect from others. If you are stuck in a case of domestic abuse remember that no matter how many times you have convinced yourself, this was the last time, the hand raising is bound to return and you will find yourself locked in a downward spiral.
So, the first time you feel like the limit has been crosses, pack your bags and go and live the life you deserve not the one you are stuck in.
The blame game
Some toxic relationships start with the blame game. If you find your spouse blaming you for every damn thing even if it has nothing to do with you, the signs are very clear. Remember, bruised hearts may heal but scars won’t. So, you should know how not to give in to every blame being put on you.
Know the logic behind the blame and prove why you are much worthier than what you are being made into.
The diminishing smile
If you are rarely happy and most of your days pass by just sulking, this relationship surely isn’t the one for keeps.
So, it is pointless staying chained in a relationship that doesn’t make you happy. Toxic relationships kill a person from within and leave them hollow and hurt. Know how to cut the chords before the poison spreads too far and too wide.
