Toxic Relationship

Satisfactory Essays
You never truly know a person until you have been in a relationship with your significant other for over a year. I believe this to be true because during the first year, there is a wall that allows you to only see what your partner wants you to see. After a year, the wall comes down and you see the ugly truth, at least this is what I experienced. After a year of being in a relationship, that’s when I discovered I was in a toxic relationship with a manipulative and abusive boyfriend. I came to this realization when I was in emotional and physical distress after the most frightening argument we had. I soon had to end our relationship, but it was harder than what it appears to be. After spending a year with a devious partner, you are in the trap

    Hell No! I refuse to live through another day with yet another toxic relationship! I’m sure that almost everyone out there can relate. A toxic relationship is a relationship with anyone that takes, takes, takes, yet never gives back or gives back in harmful ways. Friends and family or even mere acquaintances that wear us down to the point of exhaustion; always asking for a favor, a loan or in many cases, just someone to listen to them, yet when it comes time to return the favor, they never do, or they don’t keep my best interests at heart when doing so. I’m not interested in continuing to associate with people who do not hold me in their highest regard. No one should have to deal with this type of person in his/her life.…

    Pictures are said to be worth a million words. But have you ever taken a moment to analyze a picture such as an Ad or a commercial? Most commercials or ads persuade you to buy something that they are selling usually by cheesy actors or delicious looking food. A majority of these ads are targeted to specific age groups, whether it is for kids, teens, adults, or elders. But others are unanticipated manifestations. For example, the smoking commercials, these commercials show smokers who have serious health problems that affected their life. These ads use subliminal yet informational text, image, or media and other effects to make an impact. Many Ads can be analyzed with Aristotle’s appeals; the images provided can also be analyzed with the three appeals which are ethos, pathos, and logos.…

    Sigmund Freud, an early Austrian psychologist, is famous for his fundamental contributions to research in psychology. The greatest contribution of Sigmund Freud is considered to be the so called psychoanalysis. This method of research was based on case studies through recording and study of the mental problems of his patients. After having thoroughly studied hundreds of such cases, Sigmund Freud arrived to a conclusion that many of the psychological problems of adults are triggered by some unpleasant events that occurred during their childhood or youth. Such violent acts as rape, physical abuse, or verbal offences, when encountered by an adolescent, may irreparably damage his or her further life as an adult.…

    Some common warning signs of trouble are either partner may stop listening or cease to be emotionally present for the other. Feeling ignored, unappreciated, unwanted. Or when a couple enjoy spending time together and then usually find themselves in the company of others, spending time apart, or preferring to stay home alone. Partners may gain irresponsible or hurtful behavior, or show a lack of respect for each other. Actions that I can take to improve my interpersonal relationship are recognizing my own feelings and dealing with them, spending time with my current friends or reconnecting with old ones, not rushing into a “rebound” relationship. Self-nurturance, I need to love myself before I can love someone else, or even expect someone else to love me.

Becoming a better listener allows me to share feelings, express concerns, communicate wants and needs, and let our thoughts and opinions be…
