We get into a relationship to gain a sense of security in terms of the feelings the other person has towards us. We wish to celebrate life and live it to the fullest with that specific person who is very dear to us. However, there are people that are not interested in you, and their intentions start to change as time passes by. We can notice a visible change in their attitudes and actions and the way they treat their partner whom they once used to love a lot!
When such a stage arises, the feelings start turning sour, and the magic that once bound them together starts to disappear. This is called as ‘toxicity.’ In easier words, we can say that your relationship has become toxic; this is very unhealthy and dangerous for both the mind and body. Therefore, we should try to refrain from being in such a state that drains your energy.
Here are five ways, which you can follow to detox your relationship and ignite the spark that once used to be there
1. You need to raise your concerns
Maybe the other person is facing some problem in life, so his attitudes are changing. You need to let him/her know what is bothering you. Where do you think it has become different? They need to know about this. This could be possible that are unaware of the sudden variations in their behavior that you notice.
2. Love yourself
One thing that most people forget and especially when they are in a relationship is that they must love themselves. Yes! It is important to treat yourself right. Know your worth. Do not ever settle for something less. There is no need to compromise because you are perfect; you can get a better partner. Just love yourself enough and appreciate all that makes you different.
3. Talk to your friends
Remember that one friend to whom you no longer talk after being in this relationship. Call that friend talk to him/her about your life. Meet your other friends. Be social and meet other people as they will help you out and advise you how to detox your relationship.
4. Peep in yourself
There is a possibility that the problem is in you and you are not able to identify it. Take a deep breath. Write it all in a journal if you are fond of writing. Ask someone for advice because the other person can see your incapacities and tell you more about your flaws than yourself. If there is some area, which requires working on, try to get it right before finding faults in your partner. Maybe your partner has changed his attitude towards you due to the variations he felt in your behavior!
That is just a thought. Do think about it too.
5. Follow a healthy routine
If you are doing the same things for a long time, it is the right time to engage in some new activities. Indulge in something you love; you can start painting; writing or sketching whatever feels right for you. Choose a hobby that brings out your creative self, and you feel fresh and happy. Practice yoga, go for a walk and do exercise for some time each day. This way you will get rid of the pain that you went through during that toxic relationship and cleanse your soul, too.
The final thought
There are only two ways for you either you can work on the relationship and sort it out, or you can let go of it, the former is tough, but it definitely suits your situation and whether you and your partner are serious with each other and are willing to continue the relationship or not. You do not have to force it to work. If it seems that things are not in your favor, just get over it and live your life being the best version of yourself.
