Re: Wife has manipulated me for years?
Control and one person playing those games dont happen instantly, they start slow, pushing and poking the other, using little things, guilt for example to gain control. So before someone says your weak or not a man, understand that we men have been screwed up alot, told we have to be nice, not be so dominate, then we turn around and a narsisist has pushed us and we wake up seeing a prison of a relationship. Im easy going and been pushed and manipulated by a queen. Now Im looking at how to get rid of her and save my life and my kids. She is so good at the games, she even has herself convinced Im not even human. Im not allowed to have a view, or idea without being told Im ignorant. funny thing is, I figured it out and she is truly stupid, thinking any human would stay in this mess.
Get out. Let someone else deal with the mental issues, mental abuse and control games are to me worse than physical abuse. Bruises heal, not sure Ill ever trust again.
