No relationship is perfect in this world. Every relationship has its own share of flaws. But one can make it strong and a happy one by putting effort into it.
There can be times when you and your partner have some differences which may lead to conflicts in your relationship.
But in that case, instead of breaking up, you work with your partner to sort out the problem. Doing so will save your relationship from hitting a dead end.
Unfortunately, there are some relationships that one must avoid as it is never a good idea to stay in a toxic relationship.
Staying away from a toxic and exhausting relationship will always save you from heartbreak. Here are six types of relationship you need to avoid at all cost:
1. The relationship with no label
Though your partner may do all those things that a partner does, he/she won’t admit being in a relationship with you. Instead, your partner will refer to you as his/her cousin or friend. Even if he/she meets you every now and then, spends time with you, makes future plans and does many other lovey-dovey things, he/she will never accept you as his/her partner. You will be introduced as a relative, colleague or friend.
2. A controlling and manipulative relationship
A relationship where one of the partners controls and manipulates all the time is never a healthy relationship. It is a good thing to care about your partner and ensure he/she is doing the right thing. But if your partner controls your every single move and decision all the time, then this shows that you are in a wrong relationship.
3. The relationship built on lies and distrust
In a relationship, trust is one of the most important factors to keep the relationship strong and healthy. But if the foundation of your relationship is blatant lies and infidelity, then this can lead to severe problems in the relationship. Initially, people think telling lies once or twice won’t harm much but they are wrong as the consequences may not be immediate. The moment your partner lies to you, it eventually leads to inviting misunderstandings and heartbreak.
4. The one where your partner gaslights you
It can be a good thing if your partner tells you where you are wrong and if you have any other flaws. But if your partner constantly gaslights you that means he/she says that you are incapable of being a good partner or a friend or you are not a sane person, then this can be a toxic relationship. Your partner makes you believe that you are a crazy person and you can never be good to others. In such a case, it is better to move away from your relationship and live a better life.
5. The relationship full of drama
Does your partner always create unnecessary drama, especially when you are with your friends, colleagues, family, etc? You may find your partner unnecessarily digging up to old fights and creating a scene in the public. Your partner may go to any extent to seek your attention and to portray you as a bad and toxic partner. He/she may overreact to almost everything when you are around people. If this is your relationship, then you need to think if it is worth staying in it or not.
6. The one where your opinion never matters
It is not at all a wise decision to stay in a relationship where your partner never considers your opinions. He/she may pay no attention to your opinions and will consider them as useless. You need to understand that in a relationship the opinion of both the partners should be equally important. But if you feel that your partner is not at all respecting your thoughts, opinions and perspective then it is better to stay away from such a relationship.
