Pay attention to the direction your partner’s anger is directed. Are you expected to absorb the negativity, even if you had nothing to do with the situation?
Are you often blamed for your partner’s horrible mood?
When faced with a problem, you partner will unload responsibility to any one other than him or herself.
They’ll talk around the issue instead of addressing it in a direct manner.
Relationships can make us want to explain away or even deny uneasy feelings, but these red flags should never be ignored.
Everyone gets angry sometimes, it’s the frequency and severity of your partner’s reactions that should act as a guide for your concerns.
Sometimes we get so wrapped up in the excitement of something new, we lose sight of what’s best and healthy for our lives.
This can mean overdoing it with an exercise regimen or diet, it can mean missing important details about a new job; and it can most certainly relate to our relationships.
Using anger to instill fear in another is unacceptable behavior in any relationship.
There is such thing as taking a healthy interest in your partner’s life.
Whether you live together or not, basic “how was your day,” “what did you do today” conversation is perfectly normal and expected.
This inequality can be interpreted two ways, however; your task will be to uncover the ‘why’ before you can address the issue.
In the first scenario, an inability to say “I’m sorry” can be a way for your partner to project dominance or superiority in the relationship.
