Friends and partners are supposed to give your energy, lift you up when you’re down and want the best for you. But sometimes, we get into relationships that drain energy from us. These are toxic relationships and they can negatively affect all aspects of our lives. On this week’s WellCast, we’re gonna show you how you can tell if ever you’re in a toxic relationship and then, we’re gonna help you extricate yourself from that unhealthy situation pronto. Selfie 1: Diagnose the relationship How do you know for a friend or a partner’s bringing you down? Well, in much the same way that you know that you’re coming down with a cold. Toxic relationships come with symptoms. When you’re around this person, how do you feel? Here are few other questions you should ask yourself if you’re thinking you might be in a toxic situation. Does my friend put me down all the time? Are they jealous when I spend time with others? Do they constantly bring out parts of me that they wanna change? Do they take more than they give? Am I only doing the things that they want to do? Selfie 2: Recognize your role in the relationship. As Eleanor Roosevelt said, “Nobody can make you feel INFERIOR without your consent.” Alright, look, we know we got that from “Princess Diaries” obviously. Moving on, listen! You have autonomy in every relationship in your life. If your friend or partner is stealing your sunshine, you need to figure out what you’re doing to allow them to do this. Are you being a doormat? Are you putting this person’s emotional needs ahead of your own health? Selfie 3: Start to build BOUNDARIES for this relationship. Does your friend invites himself over at all hours in the night? Are they constantly bossing you around? Are they always borrowing money from you? Alright, once you know the boundary that you want to set, stick to it. Draw your line in the sand. Selfie 4: Recognize you can’t change other people. But you can stop being a doormat. But you can stop being a doormat. If you’ve determined that a friendship or a relationship is toxic, you know that you have to change the nature of that relationship. Start by spending less time with that person and do your best to detach yourself emotionally. Hopefully setting boundaries will help you begin to face this relationship out. Selfie 5: Get a second opinion. Especially if you’re emotionally vulnerable, the best you can do is surround yourself with people who love you and who want you to be happy and healthy. Use them as a lifeline during this time. Selfie 6: Above all else, look out for yourself. Studies have shown that people with low self-esteem are far more likely to find themselves in toxic relationships. You will never be treated with love and respect unless you absolutely believe that you deserve these things. Remember, you teach people how to treat you. So do yourself a favor of loving yourself. That’s the first step to any relationship. To recap, if you have diagnosed yourself as being in a toxic relationship, the first step is recognizing this. Then, recognizing your role in a relationship. Once you do this, you can start to set boundaries for this relationship and change the way you interact with this person. To help, surround yourself with people who love you. And above all else, look out for yourself. Well, that’s all from me today, WellCasters. Would you do me your kindness? Subscribe to our channel.
