4 Toxic Relationship Habits Most People Are Already Doing
Enjoying a healthy relationship is, and should be, one of the primary goals of any couple. A love like this allows for growth, emphasizes respect and is equal in every sense. Of course, they can be expressed in many physical ways — but not like the behaviors we are about to discuss below.
In this list, we will reveal the toxic habits you may be doing in your relationship, thinking they are healthy when they are actually not. Examine each one and make the right change — for you, for your partner and for your relationship.
- Being responsible for each other’s joy. This may be one of the most common “deals” in a relationship — and an unhealthy one at that. While being the reason of someone else’s smile is a good thing, fully and solely relying on you to make your partner happy is not.
- Spending every waking hour together. Wanting to be together for most times is a common thing couples do, and it’s fine — as long as there is also a time for you to be apart.
- Being extremely careful of your words and actions. That’s a noble act, but, sometimes, sugarcoating your words and softening the blow can do more harm than good in your relationship. There are things your partner should know honestly and directly from you, especially if it can help them be better.
- Staying when the relationship has gone bad. Many couples will stick out their relationship through thick and thin. But it’s not admirable when the relationship you have is already destroying you from the inside out. In the first place, a healthy and worth staying relationship should never change you for a bad reason, but push you into growing and going forward.
It can mean that the value they give to themselves is dependent on your state.
Because you want them to be happy, you force yourself to be happy, do things that will seemingly bring joy or lie in their face just to satisfy them. You may even experience your partner trying to be your source of joy.
Learn to find your own happiness while being supportive of your partner’s own.
Your personal growth can be stifled if there is no space for you to pursue what you want or need. It can also intrude in your partner’s personal space if there’s no air for them to do things on their own.
Allow time apart to establish each other’s space and independence, but keep the communication lines open. Understand that you and your partner are individuals who are allowed to grow and have your own personal secrets.
Being a nice person is important, of course, but too much of it could fall into the category of babying your partner and keeping them blind from the rest of the world.
Approach your partner calmly and in a safe space, then talk things over properly and highlight the positive points of this discussion.
Staying even when you feel and appreciate nothing anymore can be considered worse than simply letting go. Evaluate things and find a respectable way to exit the relationship. You both deserve to have a better relationship.
You might think this is what a healthy relationship should look like because they all have happened in yours. This type of behavior may appear loving and sweet but it shouldn’t be normalized. Learn to identify a romantic gesture from a damaging one, and do better in your relationship.
