7 Signs You're in a Toxic Relationship

When you're in a relationship, it's natural to have disagreements and arguments. But if your partner is consistently treating you badly, or if the relationship has become toxic, then it may be time to reassess the situation. In this blog post we'll discuss seven signs that suggest you're in a toxic relationship and provide advice on when it's time to leave.

1. He doesn't respect your boundaries. If your partner is constantly pushing the boundaries of what makes you feel comfortable, then this should be seen as an immediate red flag. This could mean disregarding how much physical contact you want to have, or trying to control how you spend your time and who you spend it with.

2. He insults or belittles you regularly. No one deserves to be insulted or belittled by their partners, especially not on a regular basis. If your partner is constantly putting you down or making derogatory comments about your looks or intelligence, then this is not acceptable behavior and should not be tolerated in any way.

3. He expects all of his needs to come first. A healthy relationship should be balanced and allow both parties to make compromises for each other's needs. If he expects all of his needs to come first regardless of yours, then this suggests that he does not view the relationship as equal and that he is prioritizing himself over you.

4. He withholds affection from you when he's upset about something else unrelated to you personally. It's normal for couples to argue from time-to-time; however, it shouldn't become personal or lead him to take out his anger on you by withholding affection intentionally as punishment for things that are out of your control.

5. He refuses to apologize after arguments or fights even when he knows he was wrong. Apologizing can be difficult but it's important in order for relationships to move forward after disputes occur between partners. It's essential that both people are willing and able to offer apologies if needed—if one person refuses, then that could indicate underlying issues within the relationship. Refusing an apology also implies lack of accountability which can further damage the trust within the partnership.

6. He makes promises that he doesn't keep. Promises are important in relationships as they create trust between partners. If someone continually breaks their promises without reason or explanation, then this suggests they don't value the importance of keeping their word, which puts strain on any existing trust between partners.

7. He gaslights you. Gaslighting is a form of mental abuse where someone manipulates another person into believing they are at fault even though they aren’t. This type of manipulation usually results in feelings of confusion and worthlessness, which can cause long term damage. If your partner chronically dismisses your feelings and opinions,or attempts to manipulate them on purpose then this could indicate a deeper issue within the relationship.


Although these signs may indicate that there are issues within the relationship, it doesn't necessarily mean that it cannot be fixed. However, if these behaviors continue over an extended period of time without improvement, then it may be necessary for both parties involved to consider ending the partnership altogether. Relationships should make both people feel safe, respected, and valued — so if those requirements are no longer being met, then it may be time for a change. No one deserves mistreatment.

A Blog About Blogging -Someone Please Notice Me!

I've been spending some time joining social networks for Bloggers and checking out other blogs. One thing I've noticed is that a lot of people have a theme for their blog. The other thing that they have, that my blog doesn't have, is a header. I've seen so many pretty header images and catchy Blog titles. I'm wondering, "Is my blog missing something?" I chose not to use a header because I think it will clash with all the colors on my page and make everything look too busy. I chose not to stick to one theme because I have a million things to say and they come in a variety of different topics. I haven't been getting a lot of comments. So, I'm not sure if it has to do with the layout of my blog, or something else like that. I read somewhere online that for every 100 people that view your blog only 10 will comment. I can say that the social networks have paid off. Most of the comments that I received came from people who are members of those networks.

Selecting New Eyeglasses (It's Never a Bad Idea to Consider the Price)

I accidentally threw away my glasses one night, (that's so me, I had put them in a plastic bag with some snacks). That was over a year ago and I just recently took on the challenge of selecting and purchasing new eyeglasses . This is a challenge to me, because I always have a difficult time selecting the best glasses for my face shape and skin tone. Honestly, I hate the way I look in any glasses and if I didn't need prescription glasses in order to operate a vehicle, I would go without them. (I do not recommend that anyone else do that, and I'm sure my optometrist would scold me). In order to prevent myself from getting another ticket, I had to take on the task of finding some glasses that I would feel comfortable and confident in. This time around I did some online research on how to pick out the perfect glasses . I watched some videos, read some articles, figured out my face shape, and then forgot almost everything as soon as I walked into the optical shop and saw

No one feels good about a debt collector breathing down their necks, but it happens. If you are lagging behind on your bills, it should not be surprising when you hear from a collection agency. If you do get a call from any such agency, it is better to get them off of your back as soon as possible.

This article will disclose some of these undisclosed facts that everybody dealing with a business collection agency should know. The following facts have been provided Claire Johnson, a personal finance lawyer: You are not obligated to communicate with a collection agency :  A business collection agency does not have the right to harass you with their collection calls.
