If you’ve ever dated someone who thrives on drama, you know what an “emotional terrorist” is. It is when you are in a relationship with someone who drains your energy (not in the fun way) and uses emotional warfare on you to get what they want.
I know it sounds outrageous – but hyperbole aside, dating someone who is manipulating can become a hostage situation of sorts. It’s even worse when you don’t recognize when it’s happening. Of course, in hindsight you realize how bad it was in those moments of clarity. Lesson learned, right?
How do you know when you are being manipulated in a relationship? When you are caught up in the sex, emotions, breakups and makeups, is it impossible to see the signs?
Have you ever been in a similar relationship? How did you handle it?
