Talking to them or thinking about the relationship makes you feel drained. Think about the last time you felt happy and at peace...
Use of the following type of hostile communication between partners:
- Yelling & Name-calling
- Throwing & breaking stuff
- Using one's body for physical intimidation
A partner is someone you can rely on and to whom you can show your vulnerable side. If you lack trust and aren't able to do these things then you are in a toxic relationship.
Some controlling behavior to look out for are :
– Threatening loss of something – Telling you what's right – Needing to know everything you do and who you're with
When a partner lies to you, it signals they don't respect you as a mutual partner who deserves honesty and care.
If you are the one who is doing everything in the relationship then it's a big red flag. When you find yourself saying 'yes' to them frequently and saying ' no' to your own needs.
