Over time, we become used to whatever environment we are in, even if it is lacking, problematic, or dissatisfying.
This is even more problematic when we are in close relationship, like a familial or a romantic one, because it is easy to get into a mental state where we feel stuck in this environment.
And when a person feels stuck, sometimes they feel and behave as if they actually are stuck. This quickly becomes complicated when people carry their childhood environments into adulthood. All of this and more make personal relationships toxic, complex, problematic, or dissatisfying.
