Today we’re talking toxic relationships both in dating and in marriage.
Q: When it comes to general relationships, how do you know when a relationship is worth working on, and how do you know when it’s time to walk away?
A: When it is time to walk away from an unhealthy relationship? That’s a question we’re diving in to today.
Christians tend to really struggle with the idea of walking away from relationships, even when they get to a place where they’re harmful or even dangerous.
I’m joined by my friend and bestselling author, Gary Thomas, to tag-team this question today because he just finished writing all about toxic relationships, and it’s a conversation we need to bring to the surface.
In today’s episode we’re covering:
- Why is it actually biblical for us to walk away from toxic relationships?
- What are some key motivators to remember when it comes to making the choice to walk away from a toxic relationship?
- How do we recognize a relationship that’s hurting us?
- How to handle toxic relationships in dating as well as in marriage.
- And so much more!
