When you start a romantic relationship, the last thing you want to think about is whether it will turn into a toxic relationship, or whether it will stay healthy. Some of us don’t even see the red flags, so we think we just have a crisis that will end soon. But we end up hurting, which is inevitable in a toxic relationship.
So if you’re not sure what to tolerate in a relationship and what to cut off the moment you see it, here are some things to watch out for.
1. People in healthy relationships have great trust in each other.
They don’t go crazy every time their partner goes out with their partner, and they don’t go crazy when someone bumps into their partner. They know that their partner chose them and that no one wants to be with them.
People in bad relationships check each other’s personal belongings. They are so obsessed with cheating that they may check their partner’s social media accounts and text messages on their phones. The bad thing is that if they keep behaving like this, they’ll burn out quickly because it’s not a good way to build a relationship.
2. People in healthy relationships push their partners to be the best version of themselves.
They are happy when their partner achieves their goals and their life is going well. They are not jealous of each other, they are happy with the life they have created for themselves. People in toxic relationships hold back their partners.
They are afraid that their partner is successful in their life and that they are stuck somewhere in the middle. So they try to stop them, give them bad advice.
3. People in healthy relationships have their own free time.
They don’t want to be with their partner all the time because they value time alone or with friends and family. They know how important it is and they will never sacrifice it. People in toxic relationships stick together. They are extremely insecure, thinking that if they ignore their partner, someone will steal them.
They have low self-esteem, and whether they feel comfortable around their partner or not, they will still be with them. This means that both partners can do whatever they want while being careful not to hurt their loved ones. They respect each other and treat each other as expected of them.
4. People in healthy relationships are equal.
People in toxic relationships have no equal. One of them always dominates and the other must obey them.
People in toxic relationships have no equal. One of them always dominates and the other must obey them. If the man is dominant then the girl should do whatever she wants and she should forget her own wishes and desires.
5. People in healthy relationships communicate openly and honestly.
Even if there are bumps in the road, they will try to deal with it in a normal civilized way. They don’t want to argue with each other because they don’t think it makes sense, so they talk openly about things they don’t like.
People in toxic relationships don’t communicate openly. When things go bad, they like to do silent therapy. It’s her way of dealing with problems. They just act like kids and don’t want to take the first step towards actually solving the problem.
6. People in healthy relationships fully accept each other.
They refuse to change each other because they are in love with these people just because they are who they are. So it’s wrong to change what you really like, right? People in toxic relationships seek constant change.
The truth is that such people cannot fully accept their partner. If they can shape them into something they like, they’ll like it even more. They want their mates to behave like puppets and they will be their masters. I probably don’t need to explain why this relationship is sick!
7. People in healthy relationships support each other.
They think their partner is also their best friend and they want to be with them when they need it. No matter what happens, they will be the first to help them and tell them everything will be ok. They are true friends and have no problem going the extra mile for their loved ones.
People in toxic relationships never give support to their partners. A reason for this might be the lack of love and respect, but they still don’t want to break up because they feel much safer when they have someone they can lean on. They think it is better to be in any kind of relationship than being alone. The final result is a person who is unhappy and who lost every hope in eternal love.
