Spiritual and Emotional Intelligence in Relationship Part III
If you’ve been manipulated throughout the relationship, then it’s very likely that you’ll get manipulated during the break-up. Don’t let the person try to sway you with his emotions, tell you that you’ll never find someone else, or bribe you with all of the things he can do for you if you stay, whether it’s to marry you, buy you a house, or go to anger management classes.
It’s natural that you’ll feel sad and lonely without your significant other. If he or she controlled every aspect of your life and you’re suddenly on your own again, having to make decisions for yourself, it’s logical for you to feel unable to handle the smallest decisions, and to feel completely alone and overwhelmed. But this is exactly how your ex wanted you to feel — like you couldn’t possibly live a day of your life without him.
