Being in a one-sided relationship is never the dream of anyone. It deprives you of the calmness and happiness you should experience in a relationship.
A one-sided relationship is imbalanced and mostly beneficial to one partner, while the other suffers.
Unlike a mutual relationship where there is mutual understanding, a one-sided relationship does not give room for mutual reasoning.
If you are still unsure of the status of your relationship, here are ways you could detect if you are in a one-sided relationship.
1. Increased stress
A one-sided relationship can take a toll on your physical and mental health. Some relationships can create stress for a person.
And for someone who already experiences stress from the workplace, the stress may become unbearable.
2. Low self-esteem
A one-sided relationship will make you lose confidence and self-esteem. This is because you may be left thinking that the cause of your partner’s attitude is. After all, you are not good enough for him/her.
3. Poor communication
A healthy relationship would always have healthy communication. When you no longer talk with your partner or talk very little and when necessary only, you are gradually making your relationship one-sided. Poor communication kills a relationship.

4. You Always take the blame
When you see yourself always taking the blame for whatever happens in your relationship, then you should run a proper check on your relationship.
Taking the blame always will also make you apologize more than you need to. You apologize even when your partner is at fault.
5. Always make excuses for them
You find yourself making excuses for your partner without even being sure if the person can do the same for you.
6. You feel insecure
You should feel secure being around your partner in a healthy relationship. But when you are in a one-sided relationship, that feeling of security seems to elude you.
