    Nieve But Coming Out Of It

    I've been blessed with good friends and good family. They are all kind, generous and thoughtful. My first experience with a manipulator was my ex-wife whom I met 6 years ago. We had a kid, married, but there was always something wrong and we finally broke up 2 years ago. (I lost...

    ...and It Continues....

    I grew up in a home with both parents and an older brother; however, it was essentially a 3-ring circus with me on the outside looking in. My mother drank alot, my father was a workaholic and my brother was mentally ill. There was always some sort of discord, drama and event...

    This kind of behaviour is something I literally

    CAN NOT STAND. I can not tolerate it at all. Especially when it comes to the guilt trip. And yet, it seems like everyone in my life tries to manipulate me. To be fair, it's pretty easy, I'm not the kind of girl that likes to stir the pot so I go with it. But now I have reached...

    I have had to deal with manipulation in bad

    ways throughout my life and it is disgusting. My gramma used to tell me she would kill herself if I didn't do such-and-such a thing for her. She used to tell me she had a bottle of poison and she would drink it if I didn't do such-and-such a thing for her. My mom and stepdad...

    You know what really ****** me off?

    Panhandlers who trap you when you're stopped at a red light. To me, that's being manipulative. My ex was manipulative although she wasn't a panhandler. She just refused to work, which is kinda the same thing I guess.

    Honest Illusions

    There is no such thing as an honest manipulation and anyone who tells you different doesn't know jack. Manipulation isn't letting things develop on their own but rather purposely sticking your hands and great platters of feet to get the result that you want. Next to infidelity...

    If someone says "you don't believe in us"

    or "you don't trust me" when you feel uncomfortable doing something, isn't that manipulation?

    I had a girlfriend who hated my ex wife

    for being manipulative, but was far more manipulative herself. In fact, I believe she needs professional help.
