It is good to be in a relationship where you experiences peace of mind, a relationship where you will be secured, highly valued and respected. I believe no one will have the mindset of entering into a relationship with the opposite.
No matter how careful you are in selecting whom to enter into a relationship with, things can sometimes get sour. During the on set of relationship, most of the ugly characters possessed by the individuals may not manifest, but as time goes on, you may begin to notice some of these negative signs which are characteristics of a toxic relationship.

As the name implies, any relationship that you are not comfortable with, is toxic to you. So you need to be careful and always watch out for the warning signs which are;
Toxic relationship is characterized by forms of abuses such as emotional, physical, and sexual abuse as I earlier listed.
- Emotional abuse; Emotional abuse can be a product of verbal abuse and other undesirable attitudes. Do you know that sometimes words kills faster than bullets? Do you find yourself in a relationship where your partner constantly abuses you? Are you in a relationship where your partner uses your secrets and weak points to humiliate you? Know that such relationship is not healthy but rather toxic to you. Emotional injury can be disastrous to your health, so try to avoid such relationship.
- Physical abuse; This is one of the dangerous form of abuses that can exist in a toxic relationship. When you find yourself in a relationship where your partner does not see it as an offence to hit you either with an object or bare hands, don’t wait for someone to tell you to quit before quitting. Some people have lost their lives while nursing injuries sustained as a result of physical abuse from their relationship, so you should take note and do not be a victim.
- Sexual abuse; Most people are in a relationship where they being forced by their partner to have intercourse with them whether they like it or not. You don’t need to be in such a relationship because it can lead you into an unwanted pregnancy, abortion and contacting of sexually transmitted diseases.
