Even after a break up a partner can make attempts to stay in control.
Here are a few examples…
- Constant messaging- texts, calls, etc.
- Begging you to take them back one minute and degrading you and calling you names the next
- Threats to hurt/kill themselves if you break up with them
- Spying on you- whether that be hacking onto your email or actually sitting outside your house
If you or a friend is in this situation the important thing to remember is the difference between actions stemming from a place of love or a place of manipulation. Someone missing you and wanting to be with you does not excuse or justify violating your boundaries.
