3 Signs Of A Toxic Relationship

If you feel like you're in a possibly dangerous situation...

When we first meet someone, and we click immediately, we see everything with love eyes. But this can take a turn even when you least expect it. 

Pop artist Andy Warhol states, “People should fall in love with their eyes closed.” In this quote, he’s referring to the magic people feel when they start to mean something to one another. This sounds ideal and perfect, but what if the person you fall for isn’t who you think they are? This is where issues start, fighting, jealousy, and even controlling each other.

If you feel like you’re in a possibly dangerous situation with your spouse, it’s crucial that you get out of the house and contact mediation services. Here are some signs that you might be in a toxic relationship. 

Lies

If you find that your partner often lies about nearly everything, it’s time that you get out of that relationship. It’s ok to occasionally say white lies to avoid fighting or protect your partner, but if the lies quickly escalate to elaborated stories, you need to put a stop on that. 

Lying comes with trust issues, and if you don’t trust your spouse, then why are you even with them? A healthy relationship is built on honesty, understanding, open communication, and self-care. If you don’t have any of these things in your relationship, then it’s time to re-evaluate if you’re with the right person.

Love Bombing

This is a technique often used by emotional manipulators, and this helps them get what they want. This involves offering you intense attention and filling you with many compliments or even gifts.

They think that this gives them leverage over you and your feelings. You must not get blindsided for this, and start noticing the changes in their behavior. 

 

Frequent Monitoring

Checking in is important to make sure that you’re both on the same page, but when they’re constantly asking where you are or who you’re with, things can evolve fast. 

This constant asking is because they don’t trust in you, so they want to know what you’re doing every second of your day. Beware of this behavior and think about your situation.

Final Thoughts

At first, everything seems perfect, but after some time, you start noticing little changes. Being in a toxic relationship can lead to an abusive situation, so make sure you see these patterns and start thinking about a way out of that relation.

You have to put yourself as a priority, and don’t think about their feelings.
