The Benefits Of Being A Kinder Partner

Being in a toxic relationship can make you feel very controlled and constricted in your own life. Eventually after following the routine over and over again until it becomes like second nature. So, changing your routine will help get out of that head space and disconnect you from the situation. By doing this you can create one to fit your own style and get in tune with yourself again. The routine could be something small, like taking an hour out of your day to reflect or taking time to do the things you enjoy doing.

7. Leaving makes you happier

With getting out of a toxic relationship you just feel like an overall happier person; being yourself again without anyone putting you down for it. You can be fully yourself. Being able to do things that bring a smile to your face is what life is all about. Personally with not having a toxic friend in my life I have been a lot happier and feeling like myself again. I am able to feel confident and comfortable in my own skin. Leaving does not just improve your mental health, but it also improves your emotional health.


These are just some of the reasons to get out of a toxic relationship. Toxic relationships, whether it be a significant other, a friend, or family member, are a serious problem. Looking out for toxic relationships and knowing when to get out of them is very important. However, I know it can be hard to leave the relationship because you do not think there will be anything to look forward to after getting out. That is wrong: there is so much to look forward to, not just the things listed. Once you see the signs try your best to get out and become a better version of yourself.

Once upon a time, the idea of being compassionate, thoughtful and self-sacrificing was not difficult. It wasn’t an imposition. It wasn’t an exercise saved just for marriage counseling sessions. Nor did kindness get constantly bogged down in criticism or judgment.

iliarity breeds contempt and all that? Or maybe you and your spouse have simply forgotten you can still choose another way.

Why Kindness Matters

Can you imagine what your relationship would look like if you actively and intentionally chose to infuse it with the loving attitudes and behaviors that bonded you in the first place?

Kindness has the power to change the course of a relationship that has become indifferent or contemptuous. You can choose to be a kinder partner. You can decide to compliment, praise or even celebrate the one you chose in the first place.

At first, it may feel awkward or vulnerable because you and your spouse have been at odds. But if you want change you must persevere.

Because exercising kindness builds bonds and promotes emotional connection. Because if something so simple, being a kinder spouse, can positively change the course of your marriage isn’t it worth the effort?

Kindness Makes You Happier And Happiness Is Contagious.

For example, you may cook their favorite meal, walk the dog together, send random texts indicating you are thinking about them or even spontaneously hugging or kissing your spouse.

Whatever the kindness, it makes you feel good to do it. So much so, that you want to keep doing it. Thus, the more kindness you bestow, the happier you feel. And the happier you feel, the more relaxed and content your partner feels with you.

Kindness Promotes Physical Health

Why? Their relationships are less stressful, tend to be more physically active, and are often more sexually compatible and engaged.
