5 Ways to Break the Cycle of Toxic Relationships

toxic relationships

1. Forgive Yourself. 

We obviously play a huge role in the creation of these bad relationships.

And while they often go disguised for a while, when the pattern finally rears its ugly design, we’re left wondering what’s wrong with us.

How did we allow this to happen, again? We must not be destined for anything better. We must deserve this.

That kind of self-talk certainly doesn’t help end the bad pattern you’re hoping to break. If anything it reinforces it by robbing you of all power and hope.

Understand that it’s not your fault.  We can’t control the actions of others, but we can control how we react to them.

Hello Maya, I wish to pour out my heart concerning a relationship that as I write to you now, the guy has ignored me for some months and when I call to know his intentions, he can’t really tell whether he’s broken up or not
