One of the best parts about being in a relationship is feeling like you have a partner who supports your life, without controlling it. You are your own person and that sense of identity should only be strengthened when you are with the person that you love. Unfortunately, many individuals are stuck in unhealthy relationships. One of the most dangerous relationship moves is to remain with someone that you know is controlling of your life.
The more she controls your life, the more you are going to start to feel like you have lost your own sense of independence and may quickly forget about the things that you were once passionate about. This is an extra depressing thought when you consider that what your partner is supposed to love the most about you are the things that you are passionate about.
Unhealthy and controlling relationships are also incredibly difficult ones to end. If your partner is controlling every element of your life to the point that you cannot function without them, you may end your relationship and quickly find yourself without any support. Many people backslide into their old relationship because of this, but remember that you owe it to yourself to be healthy and happy.
There are definite signs that you are in a relationship that is controlling, and unfortunately, sometimes you need to read about them to really get the gravity of the situation. Your partner loves you, but that doesn’t make their controlling behavior acceptable. One question you should always be asking yourself is if your partner loves you, and if your answer is that she loves controlling you, then hopefully you know where the exit is. Here are the ten definite signs that she is starting to control and dominate your life.
9 She Is All Over Your Phone
8 She Grills You About Small Details
7 Accusing You Of Cheating
Now to be fair, if you are currently cheating on your partner, what the hell? Get out of that relationship. It is not fair to either of you to be in a relationship that you know does not have a future, and I am pretty sure you know what decision your partner would make if they knew what was going on.
6 She Is Unwilling To Compromise
5 She’s Reduced Your Self-Worth
4 She’s Isolated You From Your Friends & Family
3 She Demands All Of Your Free Time
2 She Gets Upset When You Don’t Respond Right Away
1 You Don’t Feel Like Your Own Person Anymore
This is really a combination of a few of the items on the list, so, fittingly, it tops them all. You are in a controlling relationship when you get to step back and realize that you really aren’t yourself anymore. Your identity tends to mesh with your partner in any relationship, at least to some extent, and the more controlling your relationship, the further away that sense of identity is going to be.
You also don’t feel like you have the support system, because she’s controlled that element of your life, and you stay in an unhealthy relationship and literally don’t know how to end it. Remember that nobody deserves to stay in something like that though, and that once you get through this and into a healthier place, you’ll have more inner strength than you ever thought possible.
