Toxic love: how to recognize a dysfunctional partner
If you are wondering whether or not your love is working, it means that you are at a turning point in the relationship.
When there are problems that seem to have no solutions then it is also the most fertile time to do something. In one way or another.
But how to tell if it is toxic love or not?
Whether a relationship is toxic or not is measured with a dolorimeter. In other words, how much pain do the dynamics you experience within the couple cause you?
There might also be moments of happiness, but they alone are not enough. For a love to be healthy one must feel safe.
We explain what are the signs to recognize a dysfunctional partner.

You need to understand whether your relationship is equal
The first sign of whether your relationship is healthy or dysfunctional concerns the value you place on each other.
Feel you are as valuable as your partner? And does the partner feel he or she is worth as much as you?
In other words, do you feel you are equal?
An equal relationship will be able to have the solidity needed to deal with even difficult times in the couple.
Otherwise it will be an unbalanced relationship, and often this is a dysfunctional symptom.

Communication must be transparent
The lies, the omissions, the fake goodness, the withheld anger.
All this harms the couple because it erases the fundamental principle that should be the basis of every relationship: authenticity.
When partners feel free to be themselves, to express their feelings and thoughts, to have active confrontation without fear, then that relationship is working.
Otherwise we should understand what makes us hide that part of ourselves.
**Fighting is good for the couple (science says so)**
There must be freedom
In a relationship that works there must be no control or manipulation by either partner.
In other words one must feel free, able to cultivate the individual part as well as the sharing as a couple.
If there is a lack of freedom, if there is oppression or excessive jealousy then that relationship, in the long run, will not do you any good.
