How do you put an end to emotional blackmail in a relationship ?
The only thing i found that help is detaching yourself emotionally so that you dont get drawn into it when they do it. When you show that their emotional blackmail is not having the effect they want then its much more likely that they stop behaving in this way. I'm not saying it's easy but the best way as once you start to detach emotionally it also doesn't effect you so much either.
hope this helps
You put an end to it by recognizing it and confronting it without playing into it.
You either get out of the relationship or you see a psychologist to figure out why you get into such situations. You cannot change your partner's behavior.
You focus on the facts on the situation at the moment. Just the facts, and then make a decision and stick with it. If you have to constantly do this, why be in this relationship at all?
The end starts when you decide enough is enough and that you will no longer allow yourself to be controlled in this manner. When you make up your mind to change the control another person has over your life freedom begins. You will no longer succumb to the emotional blackmails threats levelled at you. At first it may appear hard but with time it will become easy.
I think the quickest way to get rid of emotional blackmail is to end the relationship. no one is worth that hassle. Give one chance and then run. Or, better yet, consider that you have already given enough chances and it is now time to walk. Life is too short to put up with that nonsense. A person who will emotionally blackmail someone is not likely to change. Run!
A person feels emotionally blackmailed when he is too sentimental and cannot take a logical decision on the matter. If you are right then try not to budge whatever pranks the other person plays. This may help in tackling the problem.
You need to be honest and upfront. Call them out on thier behavior and look to work towards improved communication.
