I believe that being aware of who a person is, will help to make the life better. I help children, adolesences, adults and parents for understanding themselves

here are 5 ways to know if you are in a toxic relationship: 1 - you stop doing all the things you loved doing before you met your partner. 2 - they make you feel wrong even when you are right. 3 - you make excuses for there faults. 4 - you agree with them even when you don't want to. 5 - they make you feel as if you can't do any better than them. yes, all relationship have it's down but true love should make you feel more than you ever were before. make you feel like you are the most beautiful thing in the world and you should never feel like you are fighting alone.

When you don't feel like you anymore and you are more concerned with making you significant other happy then you are making yourself. I was in one to where i lost myself and became so physically sick i couldn't get out of bed.

People can be toxic and manipulative in your life and not even realize that they’re being that way… Communicate & if they’re not taking a step towards change, it’s up to you to make the necessary changes or just simply let go. Stop giving people excuses. Stop giving them chances & allowing them to drain your energy. Escaping a toxic relationship can feel like breaking a piece of your heart off. Leaving is never easy, but sometimes it’s necessary to save yourself and others from dying inside. It’s great to breathe fresh air out of something so toxic.

If somebody hurts you constantly, if their apologies never feel genuine or sincere, if they say mean things to you and play it off like jokes, if they tell other people information about you that they promised they wouldn't, if you feel like you're being violated.. Remember that if you feel the need to ask, you're probably not in the right relationship.

Being in a relationship is about sharing, having fun and respecting every aspect of the other. The day your relationship takes away your freedom and you are depended on the person for every smile, that's a time to realize that It's toxic..make changes. #keepgoing #mostimportantly

If your partner is manipulating you and hurting you, mentally or physically, you're in a toxic relationship. The best thing to do is either confront your partner or leave him/her. You just have to do what's best for you in this type of situation and remember that you don't deserve any pain that is inflicted on you.

When you feel like you're always wrong, when you're so afraid you feel like you're walking on eggshells. When no matter what you do, you are not enough. When your partner points out everything thats "wrong" with you. And still, you feel that the problem is you and can't pull away. When he tells you on one side really nasty things, but on the other ear he whispers "I love you" - and he makes you feel like you are crazy.

If your happy and safe, then your okay. If it hurts, or puts you at risk- then maybe you might want to re-evaluate.

If in any way, shape or form, your partner hurt you, mentally or physically. This could be playing mind games, putting you down, calling you names, hitting you, causing you physical pain, lowering your self-esteem and so many other things that can come under the same topics.

Do you feel drained or depressed? Does your significant other make you feel bad about yourself? If the answer is yes, you may be in a toxic relationship. In a healthy relationship you should feel happy and confident to be yourself.

When you feel that you are giving much more than you're receiving. When you feel that you need too many things of this relationship and you can not find any! When you realize that in the current state your relationship, being single is better than being alone with someone else.

Usually relationships are a mutual give and take where both parties have mutual respect for each other and there is an equal amount of healthy interactions between the two parties. In a toxic relationship this balance is disturbed and there's a lot of blame, guilt and fear thrown around which is usually done with the intention to gain control over the other person.

If the other person hurts you anyways continually with intent on doing so. Things like this can be considered toxic.

You know when your in a toxic relationship when all you do is argue all the time. You can be scared for your significant other to come home. You deal with insecurities and trust issues. You have no actual communication.

If you are not happy, simple as that, and your relationship is causing your stress and negative emotions.

There are several signs which may include verbal, emotional, and physical abuse. Jokes turn into slight insults or jabs at character. Endearing names turn into profane name calling. A push turn into also. Sometimes we don't see these things until it's too late.

When you feel like the person brings out the worse than you then the better, and you feel as though it is a one sided relationship.

If you don't feel like the relationship is helping you grow as a person, or if you don't see the other person growing, or if you feel unsafe or reluctant to engage in any sort of activity with your significant other, it may be a toxic relationship.

Unfortunately, if it's something you feel the need to question, it could be a sign that you are. You need to ask yourself if you feel happy in your relationship, if you feel in any way controlled in your relationship and if arguments are being started over insignificant things.

Some warning signs are that you've felt increasingly isolated since beginning the relationship, they are manipulative or controlling, they lower your self esteem, you feel drained after being with them, you don't trust them and they don't trust you, etc.

Relationships are different for everyone, but there are so key clues. If they don't treat you with respect or think of you as inferior is one. And if they manipulate you for the good of them but it hurts you, that's another sign.

when you start to feel like you have lost yourself, and don't feel happy as you were. There is some sort of emptiness and dissatisfaction to your life. sometimes these relationships you seem to know you don't want to be together but still return.

you should constantly ask yourself how your partner makes you feel in the relationship and if your answer is wrong (bad) on so many levels, maybe it's time to consider the relationship toxic.

not allowing you to spend time with friends or family, has to know where you are and what you are doing

If you feel unsafe or insecure at all, you're probably dealing with a toxic relationship. A healthy relationship is one that you feel comfortable in at all times.
