Many people are in relationships that are unhealthy.

When a person is in the middle of this relationship, it is often difficult to see how detrimental the relationship is to his or her self-esteem. Others may tell you that your partner is not "good for you" or that they can't understand "why you don't leave." 

Your partner may be a good provider, a good father, and at times, loving and kind to you. However, there are other times when you are left feeling alone, afraid, or upset and don't understand what is going on. 

Dr. Lillian Glass, author of Toxic People, describes a toxic person as "anyone who manages to drag you down, make you feel angry, worn out, deflated, belittled or confused." It may be difficult for people to admit they are in a toxic relationship, because they are intelligent, self-sufficient individuals in other aspects of their lives. Most people in toxic relationships, however, have the sense that something is just not right.
