4 Signs You’re in a Toxic Relationship


Control issues. Your partner is rigid and must have his or her way. You find yourself complying to keep the peace and because it’s easier.

Communication difficulties. Any time you express concern or a differing opinion, you’re met with some form of anger and manipulation.

Feeling on edge. Because of his or her behavior, you walk on eggshells. You must justify everything, and you can’t be yourself.

It’s you. You’ve been made to feel that the relationship and partner are fine; the problem lies with you and your misinterpretation of reality.

If you recognize these signs, you could be in a toxic relationship. You deserve better, and it’s okay to reach out for help.
