Am I Sabotaging My Relationships?

Surrounding yourself with healthy relationships is an important part of maintaining overall well-being and happiness. Everyone needs to feel supported and as if they belong in a group with equals. For some people, however, accepting healthy relationships can be hard.

If you think you may be struggling with sabotaging healthy relationships, reach out to a mental health professional for support. Understanding the root causes of your difficulty in maintaining healthy relationships will help in learning how to work through those difficulties. If you are wondering whether or not you are sabotaging relationships, here are a few points to consider.

Unrealistic Expectations

Do you create unrealistic expectations for the people in your life? Do you do that for everyone in your life or just certain people? It is great to hold high standards and goals for yourself and those in your life. However, if you are creating unobtainable goals, it may be time to consider why you are doing that.

Extreme Criticism

Fueling your relationships with extreme criticism will create relationships centered around negativity. Even with the most positive of partners, if you are filling the relationship with negativity or criticism, there is very little chance the relationship can stay positive and healthy. If you find yourself filling your relationships with negativity, try to analyze why you are doing this. Often there are deeper issues below the surface that appear as negativity or anger on the surface.

Unaddressed Issues

By refusing to work on issues, you are making it challenging for the relationship to grow and stay healthy. Why are you not addressing and working through issues? Are there certain reasons or fears that you are trying to avoid? Maintaining healthy relationships is important as you focus on your overall well-being and happiness.

Unkept Promises

Making and keeping your promises is a crucial component of a healthy relationship. If promises are hard for you to keep, consider working with a mental health care provider to better understand that struggle.

Surrounding yourself with healthy relationships is essential in maintaining overall well-being and happiness.
