Remember, you're not alone in this fight.
Have you ever once felt like your partner always blames you, finds fault with you, and belittles you, but when you question them, they pretend to be hurt and upset that you think that way? You then spend days wondering why you felt that way, and you slowly sense yourself losing your mind. Well, trust me, you're not at fault, and you're most definitely not alone.
Your partner is toxic and they're skilled at making others think that they're at fault even when they clearly aren't. They have the ability to gaslight and make you believe everything they say. They know they can easily manipulate you, which gives them the power to control you and your thoughts. It's not that easy to identify toxic people, because they're very capable of hiding their true selves, but they do slip up at times and drop clues here and there.
If you have experienced one or more of these situations with your partner, then it's time to reconsider your relationship with him.
Toxic people are just not bothered about how another person would feel when they say something mean, and if at all the other person conveys about how that made them feel, they will try to brush it off as 'just a joke' and then make fun of you again for getting offended.
Whenever there's an argument, they will, with zero hesitation, bring up your past, but if you do the same to them, they will get angry for no reason and then tell you to leave the past in the past.
If something goes wrong, the toxic ones will want to blame someone instead of accepting accountability for their own actions. That's why they're so quick to find fault in others when things don't go the way they want them to.
You may be ignorant about the toxic traits of your partner. But people who are close to you will be able to see it easily. However, this person, intimidated by the love and concern people show towards you, will want to push them away from you. This will inevitably leave you lonely forcing you to completely depend on your partner.
Now that they've successfully managed to push everyone away from your life, they know you have no one else to count on except them, but when you start being possessive about them, they'll blame you for being too clingy and not letting them have a life of their own.
If at all they slip up and make a mistake, they will immediately defend themselves. Toxic people find it hard to accept their mistakes because they hate to accept that they are the reason things are messed up. They think of themselves as perfectionists.
If at all you decide to confront them on something, they will immediately turn it around on you and manipulate you in such a way that you believe there's something wrong with you for pointing out their mistake in the first place.
Toxic people are nothing short of venom and the sooner you see how they are, the faster you can get them out of your lives. Just remember, you're not alone in this fight.
