How do you know if you are with a toxic person? 5 phrases that give it away

No one is perfect, and each of us remembers that sometimes we said less than nice things to our partner. However, if you are in a relationship where you hear the following phrases frequently, these are signs that you are with a toxic person.

A toxic person has a significant negative impact on those around them, causing emotional, psychological or even physical damage. Toxic people are often masters of emotional manipulation, using more or less subtle tactics to control, influence, or get what they want from others. This could mean lying, playing mind games, or exploiting other people's feelings. Do you also have such a partner? Here are some phrases that a toxic person usually says!

“You make me like this!”

If your partner often gets angry and behaves inappropriately, and then blames you for it being because of you, this is a sign that the problem is not with you, but with him. How a man reacts to what happens to him is his choice. If your partner doesn't want you to resolve conflict in a healthy way when it arises and always blames you, be careful you are being manipulated.

“Honestly, I call a spade a spade!”

Honesty is an important quality, but excessive honesty used to the detriment of others is a sign that the person behaving this way is toxic. It’s one thing to answer someone’s question honestly, but another thing to throw shit at them (“Wow, you’ve gained weight!”) just because you’re being honest.

- What, you don’t know a joke?

If your partner often makes nasty comments to you, and you give them back what they deserve, and he also gets upset, saying, “Are you kidding me?”, you are dealing with a toxic person. A little mutual teasing from time to time that amuses both of you is normal and shows a strong connection between two people, but if your partner continues to tease you and only laughs and you feel hurt, there is a problem somewhere.

"Because I said so!"

He makes all the decisions in your couple, but you have nothing to say? How many times do you try to suggest something, but your partner tells you that he knows better and that you will do everything the way he wants? This is typical behavior of a toxic person who wants to control everything, including those around him.

“I only accept positive thinking!”

Positive thinking is essential to achieving our goals and not getting discouraged in the face of obstacles, but from time to time, we all need to complain a little about the difficulties we are going through. If your partner never lets you talk, doesn't talk about what's bothering you, interrupts you, and tells you to think positively, this is a sign that he doesn't take your emotions and feelings seriously.
