I have some real issues in my relationship. What is a toxic relationship?

You can’t be yourself, name-calling, gaslighting, control, verbal/physical abuse, deflecting responsibility, you aren’t allowed to have your own life or be independent, manipulation, possessiveness, guilting, isolation, etc… I think you might know the answer to your question if you’re asking this though… I wish you the best and you’re in my prayers. Feel free to message me anytime, completely free of judgement.

A toxic relationship is poisonous for you, slowly diminishing you, makes you less than you really are, weakens and kills your spirit. Not healthy.
