A lot of people forget that it only takes one person to make a relationship toxic.
So I encourage you to take some time to do some introspection and really analyze what exactly doesn’t feel right about this relationship. Do you not feel like the relationship is stable enough to handle honesty in terms of what you need? Is one of you always threatening to leave? Does your partner constantly make you feel worse about yourself or vice versa?
Is it possible that you’re blaming your partner for unresolved emotional trauma or the fact that you aren’t where you want to be in your life at this moment?
It’s crucial that you gain perspective, are honest with yourself and that you seek help if you need it. As I said above, we are here to help guide you every step of the way and all you have to do is reach out. Join the Happily Committed Project and transform your relationship or move forward in a dignified and meaningful way.
We’ve worked with thousands of individuals in these types of situations who were wondering, “Am I in a toxic relationship? Can I fix my relationship or should I move forward towards something else?” To give you an idea, here are some of our most recent testimonials:

Now, as this article comes to an end, I want to reassure you that you are not stuck in this situation. Even if you have recognized that you are in a relationship that is toxic, you do not need to stay in it. If you’re struggling with moving on, I wanted to share our specially designed product to help you exit with ease and peace of mind. To summarize, here are the points to keep in mind:
• A lack of moral or ethical principles
• You feel like you are walking on eggshells yet you’re always being blamed
• All the love and compromise comes from you
• You are afraid to speak out or to be yourself
• Physical or verbal abuse
• You have no privacy and your partner is dictating how to spend your time and with whom (or vice versa)
• Being cut off from the people you love
• Negative impact on your sense of self love and self respect
If you have come to understand that you need to leave this toxic relationship, you can write your partner a letter. If they really care about you, they will let you go and no longer hold you back. If they don’t give you the space you need, you just don’t answer and protect your dignity.
Another option is to talk to them and prepare your speech in the mirror beforehand. You can coach yourself (or we can coach you) and practice what you want to say. Just remember that this talk shouldn’t be more than thirty minutes. This way, you protect yourself against running the risk of changing your mind about leaving, because it is hard to leave any relationship – toxic or not.
Make sure you incorporate a good support system. Tell your friends and family that you’re going to leave so that they can be there for you.
You are taking control of your happiness, so you are already on the right path!
I sincerely wish you the best of luck in life and love,
Your coach when you want to know how to navigate a toxic situation,
