My Approach to Helping
Are you confused, frustrated and angry? Have you invested a lot into your relationship but your partner always makes you feel "not good enough"? Are you treated like a second class citizen in your own house? Slowly even you believe that something is wrong with you? The more unfair it gets, the more you try to prove how good you are. Now you have reached the point to where you do even more for your significant other.
What's wrong with that picture? Doesn't it feel like a trap? It might be and it is called Emotional Manipulation. On the surface it might sound loving and caring, but in reality it is designed to induce guilt, shame or anxiety. Without recognition, anyone would do whatever it takes to avoid those painful, negative feelings. The manipulator only needs to give "hints" or "directions" what you are expected to do and you instinctively jump to do it. It?s logical. Gradually, the manipulator controls more and more parts of your life.
The emotional toll is devastating: the relationship is highly pressurized. Your Self-Esteem is deep down from the constant negative judgments. You are full of doubts about yourself and about the motives of your partner. You feel no matter what you do, you cannot change the situation.
I see why you feel that way: someone else controls your emotions and behavior.
Additionally, you are right when you think you cannot change the manipulator.
Although there is a slim chance for change: you can change your responses to the manipulative attempts. By so doing, it changes the whole pattern.
There is help and there is hope! I can help you to unveil the manipulative process, to respond differently and to override manipulation.
You can restore your confidence and improve your Self-Esteem.
You can create a fairer, more respectful, more balanced relationship.
