I found this informative.
Wow! Great article and so true…guilt tripping, intimidation and cornering.
“What is emotional manipulation? Put most simply, it’s any time someone uses your emotions as a weapon against you. If you finish a conversation feeling like an emotional wreck, or feel emotionally drained after reading an email, chances are you’ve been emotionally manipulated. If you start to dread time alone with someone for fear of where conversations might go and what might be said, you’re probably dealing with an emotional manipulator.”
““Remember everything we sacrificed for you!”
If someone can turn any issue around into how you’re hurting them, you’re dealing with emotional manipulation. An emotional manipulator can twist any situation to make themselves out as the victim, and you out as the aggressor.”
It says something about the manipulators and it also says something about me, either attracting or be drawn into such interaction. I need to consider and listen to my heart.
