5 Signs You're In a Toxic Relationship

5 Signs You're In a Toxic Relationship 

 

1) You constantly have to prove yourself to your partner
It’s okay to wonder where your partner may be during the day. The problem arises when you have got to prove yourself to your partner. Yet again, does your partner have reasons to doubt your trust? Have you been acting sketchy lately? If you have to legit prove yourself to your partner or if they’re the ones acting sketchy to begin, then ask yourself: is it even worth the hassle?
 
2) Constricted from doing what you love
If you are passionate about something, don’t let anyone stop you. In the long run, you will be unhappy, filled with regret, and constantly wondering how your life could have played out if you chose to follow your heart. Contentment is constructed through the process of finding happiness but cannot be formed through instant satisfaction. When hooking up with someone post breakup, you will deviate from gratification and will only fall deeper into loneliness.
 
3) You’ve lost your closest friends
When you stop spending time with others, or even worse, you lose touch with close friends you previously had no intention of disconnecting with, you’ve most likely created a dependency to your partner. Suggest to your partner spending time apart from each other here and there to connect back with old friendships. If you notice that you’ve lost connections, there’s a very high chance that your partner may also be in the same situation. Being overly reliant on one another will never benefit your relationship in a positive light.


4) Your confidence lies within your partner’s opinion
If you’ve ever been dependent on your current (or a past) significant other, you may recall the haunting feeling of constantly needing validation from them. This may spark insecurities in your looks, actions, and beliefs. At the end of the day, you are not your partner’s vision. You are an individual with thoughts and actions that may not always match their expectations. Quickly you will realize that the reassurance your partner may grant you when you’ve met their expectations will never be enough, you’ll always be longing for more.
 
5) 24/7 with the person
The goal of a relationship should not be to exclusively grow together. A healthy relationship should also allow for your partner and yourself to grow within your personal time. By doing everything together, it doesn’t give you a chance to grow, meet people, and interact with other personalities. This puts you in this stagnant state where thigs will begin to seem repetitive. Give your partner as well as yourself some space, this will allow you to appreciate your significant other’s presence and energy when you choose to spend time together.
