5 things a manipulative partner says to keep you in an abusive relationship
Have you ever felt that you are being controlled, manipulated or pressured? They have so much control over you that you are willing to do things you wouldn't have done before. If you answered yes to these questions, then there is a good chance that you have fallen prey to a manipulator. It may not seem like much of a problem, but it is a very serious problem. It can make you feel like you have no control over your feelings, emotions, and actions.
It's not your fault that you didn't realize if you were being manipulated or not. Most people don't even realize they are in a toxic relationship where their partner is trying to manipulate the situation.
5 things an abusive partner says:
"Why are you so sensitive?"
People in a loving relationship should be able to express their opinions freely without fear of judgment. But when you're in a toxic relationship, you're afraid your partner will blame you for everything. It can be hard to give it your all when you know your partner won't understand.
"I never said that."
A person who tries to manipulate a situation will never admit his fault. They will say one thing during an argument but later not admit it. They try to tell you that you never listen to them properly.
"Do you trust me?"
It goes without saying that trust is what keeps a relationship strong. If your partner has broken your trust time and time again, and you are unable to trust him or her, your significant other never admits his or her fault and always ends up blaming you for the trust issues - you should go away!
"It's all because of you!"
If that's what you hear all the time, it's time to pull over and let the person go. Yes, you must have made some mistakes too, but that doesn't give them the right to blame it all on you, when they are clearly in the wrong.
"I don't want to be in a relationship with someone who..."
Do they give you ultimatums every time you argue or argue? When you are in love, there are no threats. It is your partner's way of telling you that you are the cause of all the problems and you are the one who needs to change to make things work.
