No toxic relationship starts bad, if it did, everyone would just leave, right?

Ask yourself: Is this person affecting myself esteem, mood, and worth? If you feel simply drained everyday, you should start reconsidering your relationship. If you experience these signs, you’re most likely in a toxic relationship

1. You feel bad all the time

Being in a toxic relationship will truly strip you away from happiness and joy. The negativity will overpower your mood and day-to-day life. You constantly tired, sad, and empty. 

2.   Control

3. Disrespect 

This is a non-negotiable redline in every relationship. Respect is one of the solid foundations of a healthy relationship. If there’s any disrespect, the partner will feel humiliated and over time worthless. This can cause life-long self esteem damage that is sometimes unrepairable. 

4. Dishonesty   

Along with respect, honesty and loyalty make or break a relationship. If your partner is lying and misleading you, it will drive you insane. No person should be stuck between lies trying to put pieces together for their dishonest lover. If you can't communicate openly and honestly anymore what do you really have?

5. Jealousy 

Jealousy is also misunderstood for love. But an over jealous parter will control, manipulate and sometimes abuse a parter in the name of jealousy. Being overly jealous comes with a bad temper and negative emotions like a ticking bomb. The victim will always be walking on eggshells to avoid an explosion.
