Promoting Positivity and Communication in Relationships
Toxic Relationships Therapy: Conflict Resolution, Envelopment, Attachment, Dependency, Abuse, Getting Out, Finding Yourself
Being in a toxic relationship is one of the most common reasons people feel anxious, angry, misunderstood, undervalued, and not heard.
Signs of a toxic relationship are sometimes easy to spot: blatant infidelity or physical violence, for example. But there can often be more subtle signs that something’s just not right between you and your partner, or between you and a close friend, a coworker, or a family member. A toxic relationship is often characterized by repeated, mutually destructive modes of relating between two people.
While every relationship will go through occasional ups and downs, when the bad begins to outweigh the good and when you begin to see real incompatibilities that you are unable to reconcile, it may be time to wonder whether you’ve become involved in a toxic relationship. It is then that steps must be taken – before the toxicity devolves into emotional and/or physical abuse.
