A huge warning sign that indicates that you are dealing with a very manipulative person may entail them verbally assaulting you on a daily basis. A manipulator does not care about your feelings, ideas, or your concerns for the situation.

All they care about is belittling you every single chance that they get in order to get what they want from you. They will find every possible flaw about your person and verbally assault you when you try to confront them.

Pay very close attention as to what they say to you.

2. Dishonest

Manipulators love a chance to gossip about people behind their backs at any given moment they think that it will benefit them in the future.

They demonstrate just how dishonest they can really be when it comes to confidentiality, loyalty, and anything else that involves breaking your trust. This is a huge warning sign that you are dealing with a very manipulative person.

The more dishonest they become the more they do not care if you exist in their lives or not.

3. No More Self-Esteem

If you have been with a manipulative person for a very long time and you feel as if there is no more self-esteem inside of yourself simply because this one person sapped you of all potential self-love, then you do not need to think twice about this being a major warning sign of a manipulator.

If you truly feel as if this person genuinely makes an effort to make you feel like you are less than dirt, then you must do everything in your power to never see this person again. You deserve happiness despite whatever they tell you.

4. Purposely Making You Insane

If the person you are with conjures stories, fabricates incidents, or lies entirely about things that never happened, then you are dealing with an extremely manipulative person.

These kinds of people will do everything in their power to make you believe that you are the one who is going insane in the relationship.

Even though you wake, do what you always do and don’t think twice about it, this gives them the perfect chance to break your spirit and make you want them even more because of how insane you feel.

Do not second guess your judgement and leave this person if you cannot feel sane with them.

5. Fake Victim

A manipulator will play everything off as if they were the victim the entire time. They will bring up random incidents that happened or may not have happened to them that made them feel as if they were the ones being attacked.

Manipulators do this in order to make you feel sorry for them and perhaps maybe that you will do everything you can in order to make them happy again. Do not give into this little game of theirs. You have been the victim this entire time and must find a way out.

Hopefully this has given you some insight into the world of a toxic manipulative human being who wishes nothing more than to make you miserable in order for them to gain some kind of self indulgence in their lives.

Remember that you are the victim in any of these situations and that you must be willing to fight for your happiness in order for them to never sink their fangs into you ever again.
