Is a relationship important to you? Can you stay in it even if it’s harming you? Relationships can be categorised as Healthy or Toxic.
You may feel drained and unhappy after spending time with your partner, which can indicate that something needs to change. The easiest way to avoid toxic relationships is to avoid them altogether.
This year, you can make a better choice by following these tips.
If your core values and goals are not in sync, it leads to dysfunction, chaos, and the most unhealthy relationships in your life. Beware of wasting your emotional energy.
When you notice red flags in your relationship, don’t ignore them. Red flags can come in many shapes and sizes. They don’t always have to be your partner cheating on you. They can be hurting you verbally or demeaning you, for example.
Setting personal boundaries is crucial. When we stick to a set of non-negotiables, we maintain some personal power. We are reminded of our own worth and our partner of the boundaries we aren’t willing to cross. Don’t compromise on your boundaries when sifting through potential dating partners. In the long run, you’ll save yourself a lot of heartache by refusing to settle.
Misunderstanding in a relationship leaves you feeling lonely. Dating someone who constantly critiques or puts you down is unhealthy. Your partner should motivate you to achieve your goals.
You don’t have to rush into relationships or detach yourself after a bad experience. Give it time. It will all work out in the end.
