Inooro TV news anchor Muthoni wa Mukiri on Monday, October 5 opened up on how walking out of a toxic relationship took a toll on her life.
Speaking in an episode of Muthoni’s Mission on YouTube, the news anchor uncovered a lot of insecurities in the relationship, and that the ex-boyfriend represented the hardships of her dating life.
According to her, it got to a point where she felt like she needed to leave, thus deciding to end the relationship at the cost of her own emotions.

She mentioned that it was so bad, that she had to seek the services of a therapist to get over the controlling ex-boyfriend.
“A couple of years ago I dated this guy, it was a toxic relationship. There was a lot of insecurities and he was very controlling. Very insecure, he was a lot of bad things and it got to a point where I felt like I needed to leave and I needed to break it off with him.
Eventually, I broke it off with him and it hurt so bad. I lost a lot of weight, my face broke out, nothing was working in my life and at some point, I even had to get a therapist, it was so bad but eventually I worked on myself, went through every step of the pain and I got over him,” narrated Muthoni Mukiri.
The sassy news anchor who was giving tips on how to overcome break ups also mentioned that it is amazing how after overcoming the break up, she is currently in a relationship, but did not reveal details of her man, stating that he is a very private individual.
“Right now, I’m dating it’s amazing. He’s not in the media he’s very private I don’t want to talk about it so much,” she disclosed.
Toxic relationships are known to take a huge toll on someone, especially in scenarios where the significant other is of the controlling type.
A psychology major at a well-known university spoke to 254news.co.ke on the issue of toxic relationships and how important it was to leave if the controlling behaviours continue to manifest.
“It is also not limited to just men, even women can rope their boyfriends and husbands into toxic relationships. The issue is the man finds it hard to leave because of probably how deeply he is in love with the woman.” he noted.
