A toxic relationship is not as bizarre as one thinks. Love can make one feel connected and disconnected as well. Eventually, it all depends on the individual you are with and how they treat you. For certain, relationships can get really toxic to a level where one cannot find a solution other than separating. But for those who wish to turn things around and make it a healthy one instead, here is something that could help.
India’s top Marriage Counselor and Relationship Expert Shivani Misri Sadhoo talks about how to turn your toxic relationship into a healthy one.
Discuss it Out
No matter how tricky it may be, talking or discussing is always the best solution. Make your partner aware of the things that bother you. The changes that you would like to see, either in his/her behavior or your relationship. Conversations can get puzzling, but your partner requires to hear you out, you deserve that. Thus, the next time you think your relationship is getting highly toxic, try openly discussing it.
Note it Down
If you are not someone who can talk or think too well, try noting your problems down everything from your point of view and your partner’s as well. Once you have noted all of it down, read it, and look to find solutions to your problems. Perhaps make your partner read it too. They also have to understand which part of the relationship needs repairing.
Return to the Past
At times, couples repeat unhealed style from their past relationships. That might be a source of toxicity you may be experiencing in your new relationship too. Give some time to yourself and revisit your past. Think of what were the turbulent behaviors you dealt with and your present reactions in your new relationship. Once you find it out, make small changes each day to improve yourself for the sake of a healthy relationship.
Understand your Role
You may decide your partner is to blame completely for a toxic relationship. But the issues are rarely one-sided. Try to understand what your role is in the relationship. It must not be about blaming things on each other. As a couple in a toxic relationship, you both have to take responsibility for the issues. You both ought to admit playing a certain role in this relationship and to make it a good one.
