Never settle for this kind of toxic love.
Love can be quite the puzzle even when it doesn’t really have to be. For a lot of us, love shouldn’t be so complicated right? Then why is it that a lot of us have to go through really complex and challenging relationships if love is supposed to be simple and natural? That’s because love really isn’t as simple as people make it out to be.
While it can be easy for us to feel love, it can be incredibly challenging to manifest that love into something real and tangible. That’s why when we’re in relationships with people we love very much, we should still understand that love alone can’t sustain us. There are plenty of couples who end up breaking up despite the fact that they love each other deeply. This is because despite the right kind of love, it doesn’t always automatically translate into having a good relationship.
That’s why you should be wary of being in a bad relationship even when you’re deeply in love with your partner. You should know that there are plenty of toxic relationships up there that end up breaking the people involved in them. Sometimes, the sheer power of your love can blind you from the destructive facets of your relationship and you don’t want that to happen. You always want to keep an eye out for the red flags that you are in a toxic relationship, and you should walk out of it as fast as you can. Yes, it can be difficult to walk away from a person that you love very much. But it should be easy to walk away from a toxic relationship if you only knew just how bad it can be for your soul to stay.
Here are a few reasons as to why you shouldn’t be okay with being in a toxic relationship.
1. Communication is practically non-existent.
You struggle to have meaningful and deep conversations with each other. Communication is always going to be an important aspect of any relationship. You should both allow yourselves the platform to express yourselves freely and openly with one another. However, in a toxic relationship, you really don’t get the opportunity to engage in constructive discussions with your partner. It’s just going to be one argument after another and it can leave you feeling emotionally and mentally drained.
2. You are always walking on eggshells around your partner.
You know that even the slightest wrong movement could set off a ticking time bomb. You and your partner engage in arguments so often, you don’t even know what to do to avoid them anymore. You are perpetually feeling cautious and anxious in the relationship because you are scared that you might upset your partner in some manner. You never feel like you can just be yourself.
3. Your partner is a roadblock to your dreams.
When you’re in a relationship with a person. It shouldn’t be used as an excuse to just stop pursuing your dreams. You should still be ambitious, hardworking, and goal-oriented. However, when you are in a toxic relationship, it is highly likely that your partner holds you back from really maximizing your full potential. You will always feel suppressed and suffocated and you will never get the chance to break free unless you decide to do so.
4. Your partner is always criticizing you to put you down.
There should always be room for honest criticism in a relationship when it does done out of love or concern. However, your partner doesn’t really care about building you up or helping you become better. In fact, it’s the total opposite. In a toxic relationship, your partner is always going to criticize you to bring you down and make you feel bad about yourself. A toxic relationship is always going to make you question your self-worth and your value in life.
5. Every second that you spend together is a struggle.
When you’re in a relationship with someone, it shouldn’t always HAVE to be a struggle to spend time with another. You should always like to be in each other’s company. You should be able to find some joy, solace, and comfort in one another’s presence. However, when you’re stuck in a toxic relationship, you’re always going to be jittery and on edge when you’re around each other. There is a tension between the two of you that always makes the people around you feel uncomfortable.
6. It deprives you of the chance of getting the love you deserve.
When you choose to stick things out in a toxic relationship, you are depriving yourself of the opportunity to actually experience the kind of love affair that you deserve. You don’t deserve to be in a toxic relationship and there’s really no point in trying to fight for something that is only destroying your spirit in the process.
7. You will never be happy.
Love should make you happy. It should never make you feel scared, undervalued, abused, or downtrodden; and these are all the things that a toxic relationship brings into your life.
