Don’t expect yourself to take the burden of their insecurities because, in your attempt to be the more mature one, the last thing you want is to take it all in and have it affect your mental health.
5. Control your Anger
Dealing with a possessive partner can get tough. In the process of trying hard to be mindful of your actions, it is natural to get irritable at times.
However, if your partner snaps at you, try not to respond angrily. Such altercations only tend to aggravate matters.
The best way to deal with is to remain calm and let the moment pass. Bring the topic up when your partner has cooled down – he/she will be in a better state to understand and absorb what you have to say.
There is a difference between being loved and being controlled – do not let your possessive partner let you believe otherwise.
At the end of the day, everyone has a threshold and if you feel you have tried your best to make him feel secure and yet you don’t see any change in his behavior, then it is best to take a step back from the relationship.
It takes two to make a relationship work and if your partner is being unreasonable, you are better off staying away.
