35. Would you recognize if your relationship was toxic?
We believe that because nobody else is perfect, that we are in a relationship that isn't perfect as well. The problem with not recognizing that the relationship is toxic is that you will let things happen that tend to move towards the side of abuse. Toxic people are just that, they are toxic for you.
The definition of toxic, according to the dictionary is poisonous. The other meaning is very harmful or unpleasant in a very pervasive or insidious way. The example is, a toxic relationship. Now let's look into what abuse or an abusive relationship is. The dictionary defines abuse as the use of something to bad effect or for a bad purpose or misuse. It can also be defined as treating a person or animal with cruelty or violence, specially regularly or repeatedly. Speaking in an insulting or offensive way to or about a person, the improper use of something cruel and violent treatment of a person or animal insulting and offensive in language.
When you're in a toxic relationship, you don't realize you're in an abusive relationship.
You don't realize that the things that you were going through and the way that this person is making you feel is abuse.
