Are You in a Toxic Relationship?

It’s time to do some more red flags 🚩 on toxic folks, particularly narcissists. We don’t have to have a degree or piece of paper to analyze toxic people. If we know the traits and characteristics then we can assume if the shoe fits then they are wearing it.

Unless you’ve lived it, walked the path, and been in a relationship with a narcissist, your mind cannot comprehend the toxic traits, the darkness, and the pain in a relationship.

  • 🚩 They tend to move fast in a relationship. They will ask you all the right questions, and wine, and dine you as if money is not an issue. They will compliment, gift you and say all the right things. If you’ve met a fast mover, that “feels” perfect, watch out!
  • 🚩 They will gaslight you. Call you a name and watch you get upset just to say, “You’re crazy, I was just joking.” This is not a joke. They are testing you. They are getting power from your reaction.
  • 🚩 They make promises! They will promise you the moon and stars. They promise big too. Things like a business deal, a car, a home, an extravagant vacation. But it’s just words, it will never come to fruition. It’s only a carrot to dangle to keep you in their life.
  • 🚩 They will watch you cry tears that can fill the ocean. Watch you have emotional pain and while you are expressing it, look at you blank-faced with zero compassion. They might say to stop expressing your pain and crying your tears for it’s bothering them.

If any of the red flags 🚩 resonate with you then I encourage you to talk to a professional. Find a counselor or therapist who can give you sound guidance on your situation.

I share my knowledge from my personal story to help others. If I’ve helped just one to recognize they are on a hamster wheel in their relationship then I know my mission has been accomplished. Sending love and prayers to all that has been victimized by toxicity and narcissism.
