In a romantic relationship, there are ups and downs because the relationship between two different individuals involves two different minds, which often leads to conflict in the course of the couple undergoing the relationship. Maintaining a stable relationship is not easy. Fights are normal.

However, it becomes unhealthy if the fights included acts of hurting each other both verbally and physically. On this occasion, The S Media will provide information on what you need to know about toxic relationships, and how to tell if you’re in one.

Based on time.com, Dr. Lillian Glass, a California-based communication and psychology expert, toxic relationship is “any relationship [between people who] don’t support each other, where there’s conflict and one seeks to undermine the other, where there’s competition, where there’s disrespect and a lack of cohesiveness.”

Glass said toxic relationships are simply the result of an imperfect pairing, like a controlling type dating someone who is a people-pleaser. “It’s just that the combination is wrong,” she said.
