You are likely to meet quite a bit of people in your lifetime, and not all of them are going to have a positive effect on you. Certain people find a way to manipulate their way into your life just to fill you with self doubt.
What makes the presence of these toxic even worse, is that often times you don’t even realize they have worked their way into your life until it’s too late.
It may even be someone who has become very close to you like a co worker, your partner, or one of your best friends. These people have a variety of manipulation techniques that they use to maintain control of your life.
However, making yourself aware of some of their tactics could make them easier for you to see through, and break free from their manipulative spell.
1. You find yourself emotionally volatile.
The one thing the manipulator enjoys more than anything is to guilt you. When you’re made to feel guilty about something, you often find yourself feeling self-hate.
Self-hate leads to emotional volatility. One thing you’ll notice is a sense of stability returning to your life. You can try as hard as you want, but people like this will always find a way to put the blame back on you.
If you tell a toxic person something critical they are likely to respond with a harsh, uncalled for attack on your character. It can start feeling like an infinite game of hot potato throwing the blame back and forth to each other.
