We all have needs in a Relationship. Legit ones like:

  • Love
  • Trust
  • Security
  • Respect
  • ...and more

But what happens when other things are masked as needs, but in turn, are really just high expectations? Things like:

  • He needs to see me at least 3 times a week (dating)
  • We need to hold hands while walking around
  • She needs to call me at 12 noon every day
  • He needs to say "I Love You" every night
  • ...and SO MUCH MORE!

Unmet Expectations

Those high expectations, when unmet, are the start of a toxic relationship and become a way for each other to control your partner.

Are you in a Toxic Relationship?

If you feel you are in a toxic or controlling relationship, who really need to assess your relationship and whether or not you are willing to continue in these patterns.
