Relationships are never smooth sailing all the time. When two people with different personalities come together, clashes will occur. However, most of your time together should be pleasant and you should be able to work out differences. If a relationship is more negative than positive, it is a sign of a toxic relationship. Here are some red flags to watch out for.
1. Jealousy and Possessiveness
A certain amount of jealousy is healthy in a relationship. If someone is flirting with you, it's natural for your significant other to feel a pang of jealousy. When jealousy crosses the line into possessiveness, though, it's a warning sign. An obsessive or narcissistic partner will become overly controlling. They will try to isolate you from friends and family in an attempt to keep you all to themselves. This is a dangerous sign and could spiral into more aggressive behavior in the future. Ditch a relationship like this sooner rather than later.
2. Constant Criticism
In all relationships, there are things that will irk you about the other person. Voicing your irritation from time to time is normal. However, if your communication has deteriorated to the point where one or both of you are constantly slinging insults, something's wrong. If your partner is always spitting out nasty and hurtful words that diminish your self-worth, don't put up with it. A relationship should make you feel good, not worthless. Both parties should be supporting and building each other up, not dragging each other down.
3. You're Walking on Eggshells
Our bodies always warn us of danger. Your heart rate goes up, you sweat when you're nervous, and you get a queasy feeling in your stomach. If you're walking on eggshells, afraid of an explosive reaction from your partner, it's a glaring sign that something's off in the relationship. Pay attention to how your body reacts. If you notice that you're often nervous and tense around your partner, heed the signals. Our intuition is always right. If you have doubts, a psychic love reading can confirm your gut feeling is correct.
4. You Bring Out the Worst in Each Other
Some couples just naturally bring out the worst in each other. You may think there is something wrong with you or you may blame the other person. The truth is there's nothing wrong with either of you — it's just that your chemistry is off. You're like oil and water — you don't mix. Instead of trying to fix the relationship, call it quits and move on. This sort of relationship is doomed from the start and no amount of work is going to save it.
Recognizing the warning signs of a toxic relationship will save you years of misery. Many people tend to become stuck in a toxic relationship, thinking things will eventually improve. They won't. Don't waste time trying to remedy it. Simply call it a day and, with some guidance from a love psychic, open yourself up to finding a more suitable partner.
