It can be difficult to know when you're in a controlling relationship. But Reddit user jackcolours recently shared an example that's pretty obvious. His friend, Ben, recently wished a friend called Jess a happy birthday on Facebook as any normal person would when Facebook sends you a notification.
But as it turns out, Jess' boyfriend wasn't very happy about the exchange...
This guy has issues.
It even spread to Instagram.
Jackcolours explained that things spread to Instagram because the boyfriend deleted Ben from Jess' Facebook:
"I think he is very loosely 'friends' with her, and he was just being polite by wishing her a happy birthday. he then got these messages and decided steer clear of the whole situation, i've met the guy who is being hostile here and he was very clearly a person who has many facets to his personality."
As you can imagine, people were concerned.
She definitely needs to get out of there.
I grew up in a marginally superstitious family who brought some beliefs and hocus-pocus superstitions from the old country. I couldn't make too much noise late at night for fear of attracting a "jinn." I couldn't point at cemeteries or stare into a mirror for too long or my face would become deformed, and heaven help me if I was ever mean to or disobeyed my parents or grandparents, because then I'd be looking at a cursed life that would ruin me until the day that I died.
But the idea of "back luck" or stepping on cracks, walking under ladders, or stealing a black cat's macchiato isn't something that my family really bought into. Sure, we believed in supernatural stuff and the idea that karma gets back around to mess with you or your kids, but "bad luck"?
No honey, it isn't luck that's ruining your life, it's an unseen species of metaphysical monsters that exist in a different plane we know little about—but they are mentioned in the Quran, so be careful!
There are phenomena so unfortunate that simply looking at images of them will cause the same bad luck to befall you. So on this Friday the 13th, gaze upon these pictures with extreme caution.
