Evadir la responsabilidad.jpg


Evadir la responsabilidad

It happens when a person repeatedly makes excuses for their toxic behaviors. They may blame you or other people for their actions. This often includes using alcohol, drugs, mental health problems, or past experiences (such as a previous unfaithful relationship or your parents' divorce) as an excuse.




It happens when people are disloyal or act intentionally dishonest. They might act like a different person when they are with other people or share private information about you with others. This may include lying, purposefully excluding you, being two-faced, or being deceived.




When someone holds you responsible for their actions or makes you feel like it's up to you to keep them happy. They blame you for things that are out of your control and that makes you feel bad. This includes threatening to harm themselves or others if you don't do what they say or if you stay away from them. They might pressure you to do things you're not comfortable with and make excuses by saying it's important to them or that it will hurt their feelings if you don't do it.

Although jealousy is an inherently human emotion, it can become toxic when it provokes an attempt at control or retaliation. This can manifest as discomfort when you receive a text or when you hang out with people who make you feel threatened, falsely accusing you of flirting with someone or cheating, or even going so far as to check all your social media. Possessiveness is sometimes interpreted as "protection" or as a way to show strong feelings for someone.




When someone tries to keep you away from your friends, family or other people. This behavior usually starts slowly, with the person asking you to spend more time together, however it can escalate to demanding that you not see certain people. They will often ask you to choose between them or your friends, may insist that you spend all your time with them, or make you question your own opinions about your friends and family. When you find yourself in a situation of isolation, this can make you feel dependent on your partner's love and acceptance.
