"The Signs Of A Toxic Relationship That's Hazardous To Your Health"
Being in a toxic relationship, brings new meaning to the statement" misery loves company". The word toxic means poisonous, which means it is hazardous to your health. Anything toxic isn't good for anyone, so we have to locate the the poison and dispose of it right away before it makes us deathly ill or kill us. I once lived in a toxic relationship, but it wasn't living it was merely existing. When you're young, you have no idea what a toxic relationship is until you lived through one and then you know exactly what the signs and symptoms are. The sad thing about these types of relationships is many women and some men get trapped into them and don't have any idea how to free themselves from a relationship that's destroying them and their self esteem.
I have met people that's involved in toxic relationships and they are miserable people that are trying to to find a way to free themselves from the parasites that's sucking the life out of them. The first thing that happens is we end up choosing someone that doesn't have our best interest at heart. They will make you believe that they love you and everything is all about you but in actuality, it's all about them. If you pay close attention, you will soon realize that as long as the person you're involved with is getting their way, everything is fine but the moment you try to do something to make your self happy there's a big problem. This person you love, that says they love you, they want totally control of you and where you go and who you see or don't see and what you do. If you don't comply with all of their conditions, then you have to fuss or argue and sometimes, even have physical fights. What the controlling person fail to understand, is you already have parents and if you haven't been raised by your parents, then it's to late for them to try and do it.
The problem is, you are an adult just like they are . If you know anything at all about someone with controlling tendencies the moment you meet this person, you should get as far away from this person as soon as possible because if you entertain him, he will wreck havoc on you and your life. There are many poison minded people walking around, waiting to find the perfect person they can control so if you're all laid back and don't show your backbone, you will be their next victim. These people also tell you what to wear, and what not to wear and they don't want you around your family or friends. These people want you to depend totally on them and they take away your family and friends so you don't have a safety net to depend on, but them. They really try to brain wash you into their way of thinking and living. Please do not allow this kind of control to take over you and your life, stop it before it's to late.
Here are some signs or symptoms of toxic people to stay away from: 1. Watch out for someone that has to control everything, including you. 2. Someone that's trying to tell you who you can see or who you can't see. 3. Someone that tries to keep you away from your family or friends. 4. Someone that's trying to change you into someone else. 5. Someone that tells you not to wear make up or tell you what you can an cannot wear.6. Someone that's so jealous that you can't go anywhere without him or her, or even alone. 7. Someone that scrutinize your time, where it seems you have to punch a time clock.
All of these signs or symptoms are red flags or caution lights flashing for you to stop because there is danger ahead. Please proceed with caution. If you see one or more of these traits, then you should run to the hills as fast as your feet can carry you and you will be happy you did because we all can live without the constant headaches and heart breaks that a toxic relationship will bring into our lives.
