A toxic relationship is any relationship unfavorable to you or other people. The foundations of any relationship, healthy or otherwise, are most commonly established by mutual admiration and respect, but may, over time, become remarkably unhealthy. It is the poisonous atmosphere that distinguishes a merely bad or problematic relationship from a toxic relationship. Toxic relationships can prevent those involved from living a productive and healthy life.
Toxic relationships can be caused by two opposing personality types. Toxicity is caused by the incompatibility of the people involved in the relationship. In some cases, no one is necessarily to blame for toxicity; instead, toxicity is caused by the inability to commune and establish healthy boundaries, conversations, and communication.
Not all toxic relationships are caused by two sick people. It does not always take two for tango. In some cases, unhealthy individuals attack and persecute others for their own personal needs and gratifications. It is a desire inclined to a relationship. The individual who is attacking is seeking to emotionally and psychologically dehydrate others by removing as much as possible for their own greedy benefits. These individuals have a manipulative style and often triangulate and maneuver in any relationship they perceive as beneficial.
People who are toxic are rarely aware of their own toxicity. They are very selfish and preoccupied with their own emotions, interests, needs and goals to be aware of the needs, goals, interests, and emotions of others.
Toxic relationships are:
• Unfavorable – toxic relationships lack the expression of approval or emotional support.
• Unhealthy – Such relationships are unbalanced, unfavorable and unconscious.
• Unhealthy – They are characterized as devoid of any moral, ethical or positive principles.
• Harmful – The damage of toxic relationships is that they are not only unpleasant, but are also poisonous, leading to an emotional, psychological and possibly physical death.
• Dangerous – Toxic relationships are not conducive to life and are most commonly centered on high-risk behaviors, emotions, and outcomes.
• Poisonous – When a toxic relationship becomes poisonous, it is attacking the very nature of the people involved. It is not uncommon for such poison to be malicious and extremely painful to all others who encounter the relationship.
• Deadly – Unfortunately, toxic relationships can be hazardous to health. They led to the intentional damage of self and others.
• Injury – Toxic personality types are often malicious, conniving, immoral, conspiratorial, triangular, and unwilling to acknowledge the needs or well-being of others.
Toxic relationships are not always composed of psychopaths or people with psychological conditions or symptomatology. Toxic relationships can be made up of good people with bad relationships.
• It is important to emphasize that toxic relationships can be made up of bad choices, bad decisions and wrong turns in life. Toxic relationships are like good overcooked pasta. An overcooked dough may have begun as edible, but over time, if it has overcooked, a good edible mass becomes hardly tolerable or unable to be consumed.
