Welcome you to Ask Alex, a safe space where you can look for guidance and support. It’s okay not to have all the answers, and it’s very brave to ask for help.
We understand that it can be really confusing and overwhelming to determine whether your relationship is toxic or not, especially as a teenager. Identifying a toxic relationship involves recognising signs of emotional, physical, or psychological abuse, controlling behaviour, or manipulation. If you’re unsure, there’s a helpful article on the Childline website that discusses signs of toxic relationships.. It’s a valuable resource for understanding what you might be going through is another supportive resource you can turn to. They offer guidance and information on healthy relationships, helping you make informed decisions about your situation.
