relationship control issuesIt starts off with little things: your family is trying to end the relationship, stay away from them before they ruin it all. Your friends are only there to intrude, why would you want to be around them? They must have the last say in it all, and what they want goes, even if it is the complete opposite of what you want or need. It may even seem cute at first, as if the other person in the relationship really cares for you. But this could very well be the beginning of relationship control issues that could lead to more serious control issues in the future if you do not stop and make the changes right away.

There are bound to be some conflict and control issues in any relationship, however, when those control issues are affecting the relationship you are currently in or with friends and family and those that you care the most for, it is time to stop and think if the relationship is healthy for you.
