Sometimes toxic relationships are hard to identify, especially in the beginning. There are many behaviors that clearly cross the line, whether they be emotional, physical or verbal, and should never be tolerated.
When we stop taking responsibility for our own actions and blame others we are actually losing out on the opportunity for personal growth. We need to realize that no one is perfect and that it is ok to make mistakes. It is with the mistakes that we make that we can open ourselves up to grow and learn new things.
The best relationship is made up of many essential elements. Little Things. Sometimes it is the little things, like filling your partners car up with gas, taking it through the car wash or making their favorite meal for them when you know they had a really bad day at work, that shows your partner how much they mean to you.
