Toxic relations can cause a drastic breakdown in individuals, communities, and jobs, but they are not simply the land of the poor, the downtrodden, or the dangerous.
It’s a kind of relationship that makes you feel insecure, confused, demeaned, or assaulted. At the basic level, any relationship that makes you feel worse than better can become toxic over time.
Dr. Lillian Glass, a California-based communication and psychology expert defines Toxic Relationship as, “ any relationship don’t support each other, where there’s conflict and one seeks to undermine the other, where there’s competition, where there are disrespect and a lack of cohesiveness.”
If you are the one who is dealing with any kind of depression or anxiety because of the toxic relationship.
Toxic relationships. Sounds pretty bad and serious, isn’t it? So, here are 3 easy ways which can help you to overcome a toxic relationship –
Admit that your relationship was Toxic
If you’re having a toxic relationship, you ‘re likely to move in and out of a state of denial about how unhealthful it really is. At one point, you feel revulsion; at another, you make excuses and justify the unacceptable actions of your partner.
People usually think that they can deal with this, they will fix their relationship but it’s better that they should accept the fact that their relationship is toxic.
You are sowing bad seeds in infertile soil if your partner lies, cheats, humiliates you, exploits you for money or other means, or uses you emotionally or physically. If your partner causes you chronic pain and does not hold you accountable, put an end to it.
Don’t wait for an apology
When a toxic relationship comes to an end, many people are looking for closure or an apology for pain or heartache. This apology almost never comes, so people end up feeling worse about issues than they did when the conversation began.
We can’t control anyone but ourselves, no matter how much we want.
Invest In Yourself
Change is not going to be instant, and you are not going to meet Mr. or Mrs. Right immediately. Take all the time you’ve spent trying to get a better understanding of your toxic partner, or to fix the wrong relationship, and invest it in yourself. Use your energies to pursue self-growth. Start meditation or diary, read self-help books, or take part in weekly psychotherapy.
