The relationship we are in heavily impacts our personal lives and our perception of ourselves. Loving, healthy relationships can improve our self-confidence and our trust in our abilities, while toxic relationships can make us doubt everything about ourselves. “Healthy relationships provide validation and acceptance. When people appreciate and accept us for who we are, it reinforces our sense of self-worth. This external validation helps us internalise positive beliefs about ourselves and has a positive impact on self-esteem,” wrote Therapist Lucille Shackleton.(Unsplash)
