There is a massive impact to an individual’s self-esteem and wellbeing when an individual is in a dysfunctional relationship. An individual in a dysfunctional relationship will lose sight of who they are and what they want to be, they will become completely brain washed into behaving the way their dysfunctional partner wishes them to. It will make individuals feel unsupported and make it hard for individual to ask for help and when they do ask for help, they are made to feel guilty about needing help. There will be a lack of positive communication, which will lead to an individual feeling lonely, isolated and completely unworthy of having any relationships, making it hard for individual to socialise with others because there will always been a feeling that you have done something wrong or are going to do something wrong. Having these feelings of isolation lead to a complete lack of self-esteem and a low wellbeing as when your social needs aren’t being met you find it harder to look after your other needs properly, you think you are unworthy of love and other things so you don’t see the point in taking care of yourself. Which is why it is incredibly important to encourage positive relationships with the individuals that we care for, so they feel they are worth something and this can lead to a positive affect on the individuals that surround them and it will encourage individuals to actively participate.
