If you find yourself looking for defects or flaws in yourself because the relationship with him is faltering somewhere, after you have reflected, stop and turn your eyes to the person in front of you. Maybe it's a suffocating partner and you haven't realized it yet? Or more precisely, have you accepted his abusive behavior as normal?!
We have all tolerated situations that are not healthy for a relationship, but there comes a point where such moments repeat themselves until they become part of the relationship, or the relationship itself.
1. I don't let you go out with your friends
You meet your friends very rarely, but even when you do, you always have to take your partner with you. Everywhere you have to be with him, whenever you have to get his permission. For a relationship to go well, each of you must have a life of your own. Friends, dinner with colleagues, etc.
2. Checks your cell phone
It is not normal for your partner to check your messages or emails one by one. This is not proof of love, this is a sign of dominance.
3. Tells you how to dress
Does your partner not like you wearing short dresses or wearing too much makeup? Even? You dress for yourself honey, no one else. If he gives you a suggestion in the form of advice, why not take it into consideration. Otherwise, any imposition, any form of coercion should not be accepted.
4. He gets irritated when you reply late
Relationships don't have to cause you so much stress. If you talk every moment about why you didn't open your cell phone on time or why you didn't return the sms on time, this relationship between you is faltering.
5. Think twice before you speak
To love means to be happy, not to be afraid, afraid that you are saying the wrong thing and he will remind and remind every time. Say out loud what you feel and think and don't let him speak for you, in your name and suppress you.
