Most people have experienced at least one toxic relationship in their lifetime (if you haven’t, congrats and please be our life coach). But that one relationship is enough to make any sane person want to ward off toxicity for the foreseeable future. In order to do that, we must ask ourselves what exactly is it that makes a relationship toxic? Why is it that someone can be a nightmare ex to one person, but a perfect partner to the next?
