This is the story of a medical student who survives a toxic relationship and how she manages to get out of it. Read to know about Tina, an intelligent girl who loses her identity due to being with the wrong person and ends up suffering from mental breakdown.

Nothing good ever comes from a toxic relationship.

What I liked about the book:
—> Talks about the much needed taboo topic of toxicity and mental health.
—> There are ample warning signals all throughput, but the protagonist ignores them for the sake of ‘love’ which is exactly the problem with us a society that we tend to normalise such behaviour instead of either raising our voice against us or cutting off such people out of our lives for good.
—> The Harry Potter analogy used to compare toxic people to dementors.

What I did not like about the book:
—> The PoVs change randomly which makes the reading complex.
—> There is no proper grammar or punctuation and the language seems like it is written by someone with very basic knowledge of English. I had to literally push myself to finish reading the book.
—> The protagonist’s ‘Hey, look at me, I’m such a damsel in distress’ attitude was very annoying.

Quotable quotes:
—> She’s the type of woman most pray for but get intimidated by because she knows exactly what she wants.
—> You’re not late. You’re not early. You’re on time. Everyone has their own journey and own obstacles. Everyone learns from their journey and not from others journey. We can just get inspired and try to avoid certain things but ultimately we have to face everything written in our journey. Indeed we can overcome the obstacles in our life, and challenge our life goals just by hard work and focus.
—> We should be committed to truth and justice, whether it is success or failure or it is a public affair or personal affair; commitment towards these two aspects of life will always give better results.
—> Sometimes relationships are casual, but other times they can grow rotten. You end up keeping someone in your life who is jealous or has a totally different set of ethics and that is when they become toxic.
—> People generally think about themselves first, they don’t consider other person’a emotions. A human tank is always right, it doesn’t take anyone else’s feelings or ideas into account, and constantly puts themselves first.
—> In relationship, human tanks are incredibly arrogant and see their personal opinions as facts. This is because they often think they are the smartest person in the room. So, they see every conversation and person as a challenge that must be won over. They rarely see others as equal and this can be challenging when trying to form a loving connection. If you feel anytime that your personal ideology is being suppressed or not considered, then hello it is a warning sign and stay alert instead of getting crushed or hit by the tank.
—> Never ever trust solely on one side of conversation, always try to listen to both sides.
—> Present life is not result of past life Karmas, but present life situations or activities do affect the future life.
—> It’s all about choosing our favorite people in life, when they are with us life seems so perfect, it’s not about success stories or number of achievements.
—> Love can’t be degraded in few days and on few words.
—> People who care about you won’t let you go on felling rubbish without attempting to sort it out. That doesn’t mean you’ll sort it out but at least you’ll and they’ll try. Take it as a sign of their investment in the relationship if they leave you “out there” for lengthy sessions.  
—> Some people want to be right more than they want to be happy
—> The more you fear you will get suppressed in life, the more people and situations will crush you,. So instead of fearing, face it with confidence and deal with it because that way one day every problem will vanish.
—> Call on the universe and ask things you want; it will give it to you at the right time and right phase of life.
—> He who has no attachments can really Love others, for his love is pure and divine.
—>Do everything you have to do, but not with greed, not with ego, not with lust, not with envy but with Love, compassion, humility and devotion.
—> You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty.
