The Effects of Being in A Toxic Relationship

Updated: Oct 22, 2021

Many people in today’s society are wrapped up in toxic and emotionally abusive relationships. They either (1) think that everything is normal, that what they are experiencing is ok Or (2) too scared to leave because of a lack of confidence. They begin to shut themselves off from their friends or loved ones. They think they are the one to blame for whatever may be going on, often taking the blame for everything. And sometimes, they go into a mode of having to justify their actions and apologizing for every little thing that happens.


Did you know that 1 in 3 young people will be in an abusive or unhealthy relationship? And they may never even realize it until they become involved in a new healthy relationship.


The effects of being in a toxic emotionally abusive relationship can be some of the following:


  • Over-apologetic and/or overly justifying their own actions and decisions to others

  • Self-doubt (you were blamed and made to feel crazy)

  • You have a hard time making decisions

  • Easily confused and overwhelmed

  • Increased in anxiety

  • Loss of self-confidence

  • Loss of self- feelings of not knowing your own self; feeling of losing your spark or inner light

  • Lost your sense of reality- and your ability to trust yourself

  • Easily irritable, constantly feeling frustrated

  • Shame and embarrassment to go to the friends and family after being isolated from them


If you or someone you know is involved in an unhealthy relationship, seek help now! A healthy relationship will never have you thinking that you are constantly to blame for every little thing and making you doubt yourself.
