Healthy relationships can be a beautiful thing, whether it’s a friendship or intimate relationships. But relationships is not an easy task, it requires a lot of hard work, trust and patience.
But when someone is in an unhealthy relationship, it’s hard to get out of it or even realize that relationship is not worth the time or energy.
One aspect of an unhealthy relationship is a controlling partner. Whenever a person is in love with someone who is controlling, they tend to make excuses for their partner’s actions.
It’s hard to get out of that habit-relationship, but if you’re not sure if your partner is controlling; please read below and tell me what you think.
Your partner puts you down
Your partner puts you down when you do something by yourself or imply that you can’t do anything without his or her help. Your partner will also suggest his or her way is better than your idea-suggestion(s). This will eventually make you lose confidence in your work and yourself.
Your partner doesn’t like your friends
Your partner doesn’t like it when you go out with your friends; he or she may think your friends are a bad influence. For any reason your partner may not like your guy/girl friend(s) and eventually you’d find yourself losing friends.
Your partner’s insecure and doubts you
Need I say more?
Your partner wants to know everything
Your partner wants to know all of your social media passwords and every single detail about your life, but will not do the same.
This may seem cute at first, but over time, your partner jealousy could turn into obsession.
Ask for permission
You can’t do anything without your partner’s permission.
Your partner makes you feel guilty
Controlling partners often try to make you feel guilty because you have other interests.
