Today we will be discussing a very common issue in relationships, manipulation is not easy to catch right away unless you know the warnings and red flags before-hand. So that is exactly what you will learn by the end of this article.

Manipulation is a very common and very serious issue in a lot of relationships today, it can be done by one partner or both partners in any form of relationship.

The first warning sign we will talk about is thinking one partner has more power over the other partner, that is very wrong, everything in a relationship is completely equal, no partner owns another.

The second warning sign is one partner getting mad at the other for going out with their own friends, if you’re in a relationship and your partner doesn’t feel comfortable with you going out, talk to them, communication is NUMBER ONE in a relationship.

Third warning sign goes to one partner trying to “guilt trip” the other partner, guilt tripping is a big form of manipulation and should not be tolerated in any relationship.

Guilt tripping is purposefully making your partner feel bad for you for no reason other than to make you give them attention when they are deprived of it, guilt tripping is a HUGE sign of a toxic relationship.

Your relationship WILL be toxic if any of these happen to you, toxic relationships will never work out if you continue letting yourself get beat up and manipulated.

I had just gotten out of a three year relationship, and most of it was toxic “love”, I was blinded by a false form of love and care and that made me easily manipulatable, do not be afraid to leave someone for manipulation, it is the best thing for both of you.
