Men and women both go through stages in their lives. Some of us grow through those stages and others do not.

Sometimes we tend to think all of the wrong men fall into the same category but that is not true. Sometimes the wrong man can be in a category all his own. Just because he is giving you attention doesn’t mean he isn’t holding you back.

When it comes to spotting insecurities or toxicity most of us struggle. Below I am going to go over some of the signs that you might be better off cutting ties. While your partner might not be a selfish asshole, he could be squashing your sense of self. Just because you’ve upgraded doesn’t mean you are with someone who deserves you.

Below I am going to go over some of those signs and break them down a bit. If he is insecure and has attached himself to you adjustments need to be made. If he isn’t willing to make changes within the relationship, cutting ties might not be a bad idea. Sure, it might be hard but you have to be willing to put yourself first always.
