Toxic relationships are often hard to recognise, especially if you’ve been close with that person for a long time. But if they bring out that the worst in you or makes you feel unsupported, it’s time to go.
Relationships work best if there is give and take and both partners are equal. But if you feel you are constantly sacrificing your needs to keep the other person happy, it’s not only going to have an impact on your happiness, but your mental health.
The most common sign that you could be in a toxic relationship is that you feel extremely uncomfortable around your partner.
A relationship should bring the best out of you and that includes the ability to growth and change. Whether you feel you can’t speak your mind or be yourself around them, you may need to question why that is and more importantly are they worth it.
