How to Get Out of a Toxic Relationship

Have you often found yourself smothered, lost, angry, depressed, nervous, or just downhearted? Surely you must be in a toxic relationship. Although you may be attached to the person in some way, you absolutely must find a way to fix or get out of this toxic relationship, for the sake of your mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.

How to recognize a toxic relationship? That's a good starting point. No haste, you have to take the time to analyse each behavioural parameter of your partner/friend, before diagnosing a toxic relationship. Several signs can characterize the nature of a toxic relationship. Here are some questions you may ask yourself:

·        Overreactions:

Are you the victim of recurrent and excessive anger?

·        Recurrent sarcasm:

Does the person constantly humiliate you in their jokes?

·        Punitive mentality:

Do you constantly have to pay dearly for each of your mistakes?

·        Controlling mentality:

Do you feel smothered and controlled in your personal decisions?

·        Manipulation:

Are you slyly pushed to take such and such an action to please him/her?

If you feel concerned by these previous points, here are 3 keys to repairing this toxic relationship:

1. Change

Wake up and strongly desire change! Reject the lie that a toxic relationship is normal and mundane. Your entourage is decisive in the trajectory of your life.

2. Set limits

Set boundaries in this relationship and work on your intimacy with the Lord. Seek to understand your part of responsibility in this situation, then rectify this in your way of thinking and your behaviour.

3. Talk about your limits

If you don't talk about it, the person won't know what you're thinking. Far from wanting to create conflicts, talking about your limits is a sign that you care about this relationship to protect it. So, express yourself!
