5 signs your relationship is totally toxic
Not sure if your relationship is unhealthy? Here are the red flags you shouldn’t ignore.
No one intentionally enters into a toxic relationship, and every couple hits a rough patch from time to time. But there’s a difference between coping with some temporary glitches and being stuck in a relationship that’s turned sour. Yet some people linger long after the warning signs arise.
Pulse.com.gh brings you 5 signs your relationship is totally toxic.
1. Physical or emotional abuse
These are deal-breakers and you know they are. Why would you risk your life or allowed yourself to be emotionally drained by your partner's action?
2. Nothing ever gets resolved
Every relationship will have its issues. In a toxic relationship, nothing gets worked through because any conflict ends in an argument. There is no trust that the other person will have the capacity to deal with the issue in a way that is safe and preserves the connection. When this happens, needs get buried, and in a relationship, unmet needs will always feed resentment.
3. Arguing without communicating
We all know that yelling over each other won't get you anywhere.
It's natural to get upset and argue, but if there's no exchange of communication and neither party conveys why he or she feels how he or she does, nothing will be solved.
4. Jealousy and the blame game
We're all only human, so jealousy will happen on some level. But, excessive jealousy is never okay. If you don't have trust in a relationship, you literally have nothing worth holding on to.
5. Avoiding each other
At the bare minimum, you should be able to tolerate your SO's presence. If you can't even bring yourself to be around him or her, you should really just call it quits.
