1. Learn about relationship red flags. Red flags indicate that something unpleasant is about to happen. 

2. Understand what not to do What not to do next time is one lesson that can be gained from being in a poisonous relationship.

3. Recognize that enabling is not the same as supporting. Have you ever been in a failing relationship and attempted to save it by being supportive?

Many of us, especially women, assume that if we only support our partner, the relationship will last.

4. Determine what qualities you seek in a spouse. One of the most obvious lessons to be learned from terrible relationships is what you truly desire in a mate.

5. Letting go is not the same as giving up. I can't tell you how many of my clients who are fighting to let go of love in toxic relationships

6. Recognize your own strength. Those of us who have survived unhealthy relationships (which, in the end, we all do) understand how resilient we are.

7. Being alone is preferable to being sad. When you're in a toxic relationship, it's easy to see how much better it would be to be alone than to be with someone who makes you unhappy.
