This write up is not to make anyone feel bad about themselves or to make them want to end their relationships. It’s just to create awareness for those who are ignorant of how they affect their relationship negatively.
Understanding is very important when it comes to relationships and if I am controlling and I don’t have an understanding partner with me then things would definitely go wrong. I would always like for my partner to communicate with me on ways that I am being controlling. Because I might not be aware that I am.
Firstly, what does it mean to be controlling in a relationship?
Many of us see a controlling partner as one who openly berates everyone in their life. We even picture them as bullies, who belittles everyone he or she encounters. A controlling person use a lot of techniques in order to dominate their partners- whether they or their partners realize what is happening or not.
Secondly, we should look out for these signs which would help your relationship and your controlling partner.
NOTE: Controlling relationships are not always deliberate, and communication and honesty can help break the cycle of control. Seek for help to save your relationship. But if it’s too toxic to save, it think it ‘you’ rather than ‘we’ and do what is best.
