We all make decisions at some point in our lives that are spontaneous and perhaps not thought through enough.
I can totally understand how you went along with your partner’s idea at the time, in spite of feeling uncomfortable about it.
However, you say that you now feel unsure of your trust in him and also feel that he may use it as some form of power and control.
At this point in your relationship, communicating our concerns and having the time and space to do so is crucial.
You must communicate your concerns, reader, and explain to your partner how threatened you feel when it occurs.
You have every right for that recording to be deleted if it causes you discomfort, and your partner needs to accept this and go along with your wishes.
I wish you the very best.
