5 ways to know you are in the wrong relationship

21 July 2015, 18:28 Shakila Alivitsa

Nairobi - A dysfunctional relationship comes in many forms. It does not have to be about abuse or violence for it to be dysfunctional-just as a by the way.

You are constantly on the lookout for drama

Like the calm before a storm, you would just like to keep it that way but you are also watchful because you are looking out for the iceberg that you are about to hit. It is finally feels good just to be around them but you are also worried when they will start something up. It is the time that they will ask to have that conversation that you need to have but they are never in the right frame of mind to do it properly without it getting into a blow up.

Dealing with them becomes tedious

Not in the good but when it comes to arguments there is no one time that they fail to mention something that you thought you had fixed. You are here thinking that this is a new chapter but they still have grudges over things that happened long ago and they keep revisiting when you are on a completely different issues. What does that lead to? About of angry recriminations and judgments.

A partner who can never accept their part of the blame

Everything that is wrong, every issue that is yet to be fixed, even when it rained when it promised to be sunny ; you are the one that is to blame and you are the one that is wrong. In this relationship, they are always the one that is doing the right thing. At times you do not want to discuss anything with them because they are so petty and throw tantrums but your part in avoiding argument is a fault in a way because you are now lacking in proper communication. You can just never win with them.

The guilt trip

A partner that keeps you on your toes and makes you apologize for everything all in the name of avoiding conflict is not the one for you. Your partner, the good kind, is one who should enable you to open up without any fears or recriminations. Someone that you can discuss something with, not someone you should keep apologizing to for bringing something up.

You are frustrated because what you expected is not what you are getting

A relationship is something that should create a plus and a positive in your life. When you are stuck and it is because your partner is not working with you in what you hoped for-in anything; you will be frustrated. No matter how good you try to make it, they find ways to bring it down or chip holes in. That is never how it works.
