But they can also help you spot the toxic relationships in your life. who’ll inspire you to stick up for yourself more in healthy, well-thought-out ways (and not encouraging you to immediately quit your job or cut out your BFF because she messed up once). Any two people in a relationship will have differences — major ones — and emotionally intelligent people are willing to sit with you and go over every little detail of the disagreement, as uncomfortable/inconvenient/annoying as it feels. Just because they're emotionally intelligent doesn't mean they're perfect.

As an example: “A partner like that can be good for telling you when your sister-in-law is manipulating you, without being overly-critical of you or her, and look at ways you could better stand up for yourself,” says Whitbourne.
