This article deserves to be a classic. Really well done, Tara! Too often we cast blame on others in a relationship and rarely look inwards, and I think people might be turned off from looking at the ways they themselves are toxic in a relationship -- they don't want to think about it. But if everything is someone else's fault, that doesn't make that much sense either that nothing seems to be our own responsibility.
