Toxic relationship is any type of relationship that diminishes your value, your confidence and self esteem. Toxic relationships may probably feel good for the moment but instead of bringing out the best in you, they bring out the worst in you. Have you ever been in any relationship whereby you find it hard to trust? Or a relationship that you are forced to be someone else? You are probably in a toxic relationship.
Why Are You Attracting A Toxic Relationship?
The first thing is to identity if the relationship is toxic or not and why you keep attracting toxic relationships. What have you gone through in the past that is affecting your present relationship? You attract who you are not who you want to be, you have to heal from the broken relationship to avoid attracting a toxic relationship.
Try To Set Boundaries With Anyone Who Exhibits A Toxic Behavior
Toxic relationship it’s not just a romantic relationship with a man and a woman, but can be with friends, cousins, and some people you are not so close to. Consistently try to set boundaries with anyone and everyone who exhibits toxic behavior, you should try to create distance from people who tend to be toxic. I didn’t say you should stop talking to them but there should be a limit because sometimes they could be family but you set boundaries so they won’t affect your positive energy, you should try to be positive and avoid any negativity.
Be Friendly With Everyone Buy Not Everyone Must Be Your Friend. When you meet someone for the first time don’t be in such a hurry to be their friends, watch and try to know their strengths and weakness so you will know how to relate with them, not everyone you meet must be close to you. You can be friendly with everyone but not everyone must be your friend.
Don’t Be A People Pleaser
One of the reasons why we tend to attract toxic relationship is because we try to please everyone, you can’t please everyone. No matter how nice you are, some people will still not be pleased and probably just dislike you because you are different.
Don’t try to fit in all the time because you are different and so special, you should surround yourself with people that see the best in you, try to be yourself and learn to say no when it’s necessary.
