When you are in a loving relationship, when you have trust and respect with your partner, everything feels so easy and effortless. Of course, there will be also problems and struggles, but the important thing is that both partners are willing to work on their issues and solve them together because they love each other and genuinely want to be together.
But, when you are in a relationship that is not working, that is toxic and bad for your wellbeing – then, no matter how much you try to save the relationship, it will be pointless. So, here are the signs that your relationship is not working and you can’t do anything to save it.
Jealousy is present in every relationship from time to time. We all get jealous sometimes. But, when someone is obsessively jealous and they can’t be happy for their partner’s success, then it becomes an issue.
2. LACK OF SUPPORT
All healthy relationships are based on mutual trust and desire for the other person to be happy and achieve all their goals. On the other hand, when partners get competitive and unsupportive of their partner, then the relationship becomes toxic.
A relationship where partners are constantly questioning each other about their whereabouts or getting angry when their partner doesn’t immediately answer their phone or text them back is a toxic relationship that is unlikely to succeed.
4. TOXIC COMMUNICATION
Unkind words, insults, calling names, criticism, avoidance and overall hostility are all signs of a relationship that is struggling and on the verge of breaking up. And more often than not, this kind of relationship is not a relationship that is worth fighting for.
When someone finds themselves in a situation where they always have to lie about where they are and what they are doing, then it is better to separate from their partner. Because a relationship when someone avoids spending time with their significant other is not worth having.
Disrespect is unforgivable and is always a red flag. After all, who wants to fight for a relationship when your partner is always late, forgets important dates, and is rude to them?
When partners are holding on to grudges and shifting blame, then there is no progress and that relationship is slowly but surely dying with little to no chance of saving it.
8. IGNORING YOUR NEEDS
When someone finds themselves always doing what their partner wants them to do, it means that they are in a toxic relationship. No one should be in a relationship where their needs are being ignored and their presence is being taken for granted.
9. CONSTANT STRESS
A normal amount of tension and stress is normal. However, when the stress is constant then there is no happiness, love, and compassion between the partners.
10. LACK OF SELF-CARE
This is also a big red flag. When you abandon your hobbies and everything you love, when you neglect your health and wellbeing, then it’s time to go.
