Toxic relationships come in many guises. That's why for most of us they're so hard to pick. Often toxic relationships don't entail physical violence, but a slow erosion of self esteem, a loss of individual identity, a growing desire to please those who're impossible to please. Many toxic relationships begin early in childhood, or when we start to form our own personal relationships. If they're not dealt with, even though we find the courage to move on, we end up attracting more of the same. Learn how to recognise the nightmare boss, the manipulative or sweetly corrosive partner, the family dynamics that make Christmas and other get-togethers hell. And, most importantly discover how you can leave these painful, destructive patterns behind.
