Your partner constantly threatens you of break up. They lure you into doing things that you may not want to do. You end up falling to their needs as you can’t risk losing them. They give you frequent ultimatums of abandoning you if you don’t do what they say as per their instructions.

Your partner continuously makes you feel guilty of everything. They make you feel guilty of every nice thing you do for yourself as you are made to feel that you don’t deserve it. You begin to feel bad for every negative thing that goes around. They make you feel awful and take you on a guilt trip at every opportunity they get.

Your partner always put the blame on you. They think they can never do anything wrong and you are always the culprit. You feel bad whenever something goes wrong even when it’s not your fault. They know how to make you feel bad and hold you responsible for everything negative.

Your partner makes your doubt everything you do. They make you feel less confident in even the good things that you do. You hesitate in doing anything and feel scared of the outcome no matter of how frivolous it may be. They make you feel less worthy of yourself with very low self-esteem.

Your partner makes you do everything they want. They make you do things for their advantage without you even realizing it. You do things thinking it’s for you when it’s actually for them. They get their work done without even lifting a finger where you do all the hard work.

Your partner plays mind games. They often gets you involved in unfavorable things and let you do all the dirty work. You do what they say because you think it’s the right thing to do when the reality is something else. They know how to play with your mind and get things done effortlessly.
