I found this great piece of article online and i want to share it with my readers those who are in one form of relationship or the other. Please take your time to read and understand so you never fall victim of such.
Have you ever had a partner who was so in your head that all of a sudden, you woke up and realized you were willingly doing things you’d never usually agree to? Odds are you fell prey to a master manipulator.
Manipulation in a relationship is a serious problem because it’s sneaky. Master manipulators can twist your words and actions so that it seems like every mistake you’ve ever made was your idea. It can make you feel crazy, like you’re not in control of your thoughts, feelings, and actions. And it can go on forever before you realize it’s happening.
Manipulation is a huge topic of interest. It’s a common weapon used by abusers and controlling partners because it’s hard to prove, it makes the abused feel like it’s your own fault, and it’s easy to get away with. Most people don’t even realize they’re being manipulated until it’s too late. And then the trust issues mount.
While you might not catch it every time (some manipulators are just that good) there are some signs that your partner is in your head. If you spot them, it can help you train yourself to better recognize when you’re being manipulated, and hopefully empower you to find a partner who doesn’t need to use shady control tactics to feel secure in your relationship.
