When you are on the outside looking in, it’s easy to identify troublesome behavior that’s happening between your friend and their spouse. But it can be much more difficult to acknowledge toxic relationship problems when you are the one who is actually in the relationship.
Victims with toxic partners want to see the best in their spouse. They may continually give them the benefit of the doubt or are simply so used to how their partner treats them that they don’t see the bad behavior that is right in front of them.
Are your friends consistently telling you that you aren’t being treated well in your relationship? Don’t let a toxic partner take away your spirit and your light.
Here are 5 warning signs that your relationship problems have become dangerous to your mental or physical health.
If you and your partner have questioned whether or not you should be in an open relationship — I have a few things for you to consider. Humans were made for relationships as they get us to explore who we are and what we want out of life at any given moment in time. But what are the relationship goals you should strive for in order to make the relationship work, any relationship? The answer to that varies as each relationship looks and functions according to the people involved — meaning, you can create your relationship to look any way you want as long as both parties (or how ever many are involved) are in agreement. But before you go jumping on the open relationship wagon, here are 3 things to keep in mind.
Relationship goals vary from couple to couple but one thing every grouping shares is that they want their relationship to work. Some people want their relationship goal to be drama free, while others would like more adventure. Yet, if I were to ask you if you’ve discussed these “relationship goals” with your partner in detail…many of you would look me straight in the eye and say, “Are you crazy?” Why would I discuss that with them?
