Many Times

 Over the years I have been manipulted in many forms and the older I get the easier it is to recognize but it's still annoying.

I think you explained it very well crazymanj. I think most would agree and feel the same because the ones who tend to be the first example we have of it is usually one or both of our parents so it does make sense that there is some kind of connection to being cared for. It's for you own good kind of thing. Which on average I think is why most people do it in the first place I just find it annoying because as individuals we should know ourselves better then anyone else can. So it usually ends up the opposite does more harm then good.

I've found that In some sort of weird way I like being manipulated. It's not easily to trick me but I've found that I feel like I'm being cared for when I get manipulated. i don't think I explained that very well.

Keep writing. People will be interested in what you have to say.
