In this post, we discuss ideas regarding whether karmic relationships are always good or bad.
Are karmic relationships always good or bad?
“A karmic relationship is essentially a mirror,” explains Bais. This means that it can be both good and bad depending on the issues that the relationship is intended to teach you. While you may believe your karmic relationship partner is your soul mate, in order for it to be considered a true karmic relationship, you will most likely need to face some challenges together. Why? As sex and relationship expert Shasta Townsend explains, karmic relationships aren’t all sunshine and roses. Instead, she adds, these relationships reveal all of your “stuff” (i.e., any traumas or issues you need to work out in order to become a better version of yourself) while also reflecting your greatness.
You’re going to have strong feelings for each other, whether they’re good or bad. According to research, you may feel as if you’ve known this person your entire life despite only meeting them recently. You may also have déjà vu together, emotional memories or ties that appear to predate the current relationship, difficulties relating to one another that appear randomly over seemingly nothing, and mental and emotional pain at the thought of letting your partner go—matched only by the pain of staying.
There are, however, some significant differences between a karmic relationship and these other soul pairings. To begin with, karmic connections can be intense and turbulent. These partners frequently push our buttons to the point where we can’t take it anymore, and they show no remorse.
While twin flames and soul mates provide a healthy relationship, karmic relationships aren’t always beneficial or positive. In fact, it can cause a lot of stress and lead to people making bad decisions as a result of the stress and negative thoughts that come with it.
Finally, twin flames and soul mates typically remain in our lives indefinitely, whereas karmic relationships typically fade after the person assists us in working through the issues from our previous life. The karmic partner will vanish once their purpose is completed.
Although many people enjoy the initial passion they feel in karmic relationships, there are several ways in which these karmic bonds can be problematic.
Because of the intensity of your feelings for this other person, these relationships frequently result in a type of dependency or addiction… and any type of dependency leads to bad things.
Furthermore, these types of intense relationships can drain you completely. This has an impact on your mental health and, in some cases, your physical health.
While the instant connection feels nice at first, it quickly fades, leaving you on an emotional rollercoaster that won’t stop. This can wear you down and even push you to become someone you don’t want to be over time.
Karmic relationships, like anything else intense, aren’t meant to last. They aren’t sustainable because they are frequently a passionate relationship with the intention of causing karmic retribution so you can move on with your life.
Even if these relationships do not last long, they can have a long-term impact on our lives.
On the plus side, these karmic bonds assist you in working through lessons from your past lives in order to remove negative karma and move closer to purity or salvation.
Life lessons are almost always beneficial, and removing negative karma from your previous life will help you feel healed and whole again.
These intense relationships, on the other hand, are difficult to say the least, and borderline abusive at worst. Codependent tendencies can develop as a result of these relationships, which can take years of therapy to undo.
They can also cause you to lose contact with family members or even fights with them (especially if they speak out about your unhealthy relationship). This can have an impact on your mental health and leave you feeling jaded about love and relationships after this karmic connection fades.
Remember that these relationships, like all others, have their ups and downs. You simply must find a way to avoid becoming engrossed in the relationship and recognize when your soul has completed its unfinished business from the past.
You should also listen to your gut instinct when it tells you it’s time to leave this toxic relationship.
While you may believe that your karmic partner is the one for you, the relationship will never be sustainable, no matter how hard you try. As a result, if you realize you are in a karmic relationship, the best thing to do is simply walk away and end things before they worsen.
Walking away from any relationship is difficult, but you never deserve an abusive or toxic partner. If you recognize the relationship for what it is, you owe it to yourself to learn your lesson and break free from its confinement.
You have the strength and determination to break the cycle and move on with your life, whether you realize it or not. You are deserving of a healthy relationship that is full of passion, unconditional love, mutual respect, and happiness.
If you feel unsafe simply walking away, confide in a family member or use one of the many resources available to assist you. Remember, you’re not stuck here, and you deserve better.
A karmic relationship may appear to be a good thing at first, but it is never intended to last a lifetime. You deserve more, and you can find it if you trust the universe enough to take the first step.

Everyone deserves to have healthy, happy relationships. But lots of us are stuck in cycles of unhealthy and toxic relationships.
This is thanks to our upbringing and how we learned to relate to others.
For some, this means an anxious attachment style, where we are needy and have a fear of abandonment.
Meanwhile, others have an avoidant attachment style, where we keep emotional distance because we’re afraid of getting too close.
