While there is no such thing as the perfect partner and even healthy, happy relationships have some level of conflict, staying in a toxic relationship is unhealthy and can do significant damage to your mood, mental health, and self-esteem over time.
If you’re in a toxic relationship, it may be challenging to identify the signs because maladaptive behavior and abusive treatment from your partner becomes your norm. Many unhealthy partners are not toxic 100% of the time, so the good times can cause confusion, hope, and overstaying.
