Knowing if You Are Being Manipulated

Being Manipulated

We all know that life can be hard and when you have someone that can be with you and help to keep your life in order, it can be a great thing. But some people are really not meant to be in any relationship and there are some people that are not meant to be in your life.

When someone is a manipulator, they can hurt you and if you do not catch their behavior in time, it can cause you more pain than you can imagine.

If you have never been manipulated before, know that it can be hurtful and it can be a time where you have bene played.

There are some things that you can watch out for and some signs that you can know when someone is manipulating you. Even if this seems innocent, you need to be open to the fact that his can happen and be ready to make the right move in your life.

Mistakes and Responsibility

It can be hard to understand someone when you first start dating them and this can be especially true during the honeymoon phase. But it can happen to you and when you are arguing about something and he is in the wrong, but he doesn’t apologize or be responsible for his behavior, what does that mean? Maybe he makes promises and always breaks them or he blames you for things that were his fault? Or, better yet, maybe you keep apologizing when he does you wrong.

This can happen to you, and it can cause you to realize that your relationship is not going to ask. Stop playing his games.

Being Jealous

Being jealous a little bit can be healthy and show that you love someone that you are with. It can even be cute if you are jealous sometimes but if someone is always jealous and it is getting out of control, this can be a bad thing. If your partner is always wanting you to stay home so that he doesn’t have to worry about you being with someone else, this is manipulation.

People that are insecure are often jealous and they believe that their partner is going to cheat on them. They feel this because they don’t think that they are worthy to be with them or that they are not good enough.

It is a good idea to talk to your partner if this is happening. If you are being manipulated or manipulating your partner to stay home because you don’t want them to have other relationships with friends or family, this is very unhealthy.

Broken Promises

When guys make promises, they need to keep them. Of course, sometimes things go wrong and are out of their control but if someone is always making promises and breaking them then they are manipulating you.

A person that manipulates will always say things to keep you around, but they will often break their promises. If your partner is always breaking his promises, then you are staying with someone that is going to be toxic to you.

Guilt Tripping or Passive Aggressiveness

When someone guilt trips you, they are doing this to manipulate you. You can not do things to make someone do what you want them to. If you have hurt your partners feelings and now, he is using this against you all the time, he could be manipulating you.

If you are doing things you don’t want to do because you feel guilty for something that he already said he forgave you for then you need to stop the relationship right away.

Someone that is passive aggressive is often immature and they will use this to get what they want. They don’t want to talk about what is going on but instead they will do things to make sure that you can get mad like leave their garbage on the table after you just cleaned it up.

This happens when someone is immature, and you need to get away from this right away.

Boosting His Ego

Some people will want you around so that you can make them feel good about who they are. If this is happening, you need to see this as a red flag.

If he says things to get you to complement him such as that he is bad at his job or that he needs to lose weight, this can be a sign of manipulation. You should never feel like you have to do things or say things to make someone feel good about themselves.

People that are insecure will often do this and then it will get to the point where they change their tune and start asking for more such as you not going out with your friends because it makes him insecure, or he will play other mind games with you.

You need to notice this kind of behavior as soon as you can because it can be dangerous for you.

This is someone that will cause you to have low self-esteem and they will make you a victim in their life. Get away before they hurt you and cause you to have pain that is hard to heal from.
