Your partner fears while communicating with you
There should be no fear for each other in a relationship. If your partner has accepted that he/she is scared of you and has to think million times before telling you anything, it clearly suggests that you have made your relationship toxic. You must always keep an open communication between you and your partner where both can speak their minds openly.
If you are even slightly agreeing to all the points mentioned above, you have to start checking your thoughts, feelings and actions to find out if you are one ruining a beautiful relationship otherwise capable of blossoming.
