The Power of Destruction That Toxic Relationships Have
“I define toxic as simply this a person who is consciously or subconsciously always draining you emotionally, mentally, and/or physically.”
Research shows that about 84% of women and 75% of men have at some point reported being in a toxic relationship, which means that at some point you or someone you know has probably been in one.
But what do we mean by toxic? I define toxic as simply this “A person who is consciously or subconsciously always draining you emotionally, emotionally and psychically.” It is nearly impossible to go for long periods of time without them ruining your positive energy. They will usually thrive on chaos, drama, lies, gaslighting, manipulation, blackmail, backstabbing, narcissistic, self-absorbent behaviour, and even violence. The list goes on. While we can experience this in our relationship without having to label the relationship as toxic, if there is a pattern of repeated behaviour, you may want to ask yourself a couple of questions.
- How is the relationship affecting my everyday life?
- How is it affecting my relationships with my friends and family?
- How is affecting my career or business?
- How often I am happy vs unhappy?
