We all want to love and be loved. It’s just how we are wired. No matter how successful your career might be you still need someone to share your happiness with when you get that promotion or finish that project that you’ve been working on so hard. Same goes for your leisure time. Even if you travel some of the most exotic, exciting countries of the world and have an unforgettable journey, it’s not going to be perfect without your loved one. We need relationships to nurture our souls and feel genuine happiness. As the saying goes: “together is better.” However, unfortunately, not all relationships are harmonious, and many people end up being trapped in relationships like in prison cells. Toxic relationships can result in severe mental health problems and ultimately in depression.
Apparently, the relationships are not terrible from the very beginning. Things change gradually, and you might not even notice how your relationship turned into a source of constant worry, stress, and depression. So, what are the signs to look out for?
Do you feel like you are being told what to do all the time? If you think you are being dominated that might be a sign that your relationship is not quite as balanced as it should be. Usually, it’s sufficiently annoying to have bosses at your work, but having one at home is undoubtedly something you should not tolerate.
Are you getting too much criticism from your partner? Maybe it’s time to start questioning why it’s always your partner who’s right. Excessive criticism is one of the primary signs that the relationship is unbalanced. If you don’t react and allow it to happen, over time, you’ll end up suffering from depression. Nobody likes to be criticized.
Have you been socializing considerably less frequently than you used to? According to www.powerofpositvity.com: “Researchers at the University of Michigan looked at risk factors for depression in romantic relationships and found that a lack of social support outside of the partnership was a major influencing factor on whether one partner experienced symptoms of depression. Lack of social support can include a lack of support from family members as well. You may feel that your partner doesn’t want you to see your friends but doing so is important to your mental health. Don’t allow your relationship to make you feel more depressed by avoiding the friends and family members who can help you to work through your feelings about your partner.”
Romantic relationships are essential to our happiness and well-being. However, being in a depressive relationship will do you no good, and the sooner you’ll improve it or get out of it the better. Don’t wait for changes to happen, act!
