Toxic Behaviors in Relationships That People Think Are Normal

“How to Have A Relationship” is not exactly taught in schools, so how do you know if your behavior or someone else’s is healthy or toxic? Thought Catalog has put together a few habits that are toxic, but you may not recognize as anything but normal.

  • Keeping score in the relationship to see who did what and who screwed up more, is a sign of a toxic partnership. You don’t want to have a higher or lower “score” than your significant other, you just want to support them and help them, right?
  • Passive aggression in where your partner doesn’t outright tell you what they want, but they “drop hints” to push you in the direction they want you to go in. This shows that you two are uncomfortable communicating properly and need to work on that.
  • Blaming your emotions on them which sounds silly, but can definitely happen. If you had a bad day at work and your partner isn’t being the most sympathetic, you then start blaming them for your terrible attitude. This is a selfish move because maybe your partner also had a bad day.

Toxicity in relationships occurs in many ways. Be aware and know that you deserve better from your significant other.
