7 Common Manipulative Phrases and How To Shut Them Down.

  • Look what you made me do

  • The caps lock seems to bias the article a bit IMHO

    • That Person

      How? Also bias the article against what? People who are manipulative and abusive?

  • When you make a mistake, don’t look back at it long. Take the reason of the thing into your mind and then look forward. Mistakes are lessons of wisdom. The past cannot be changed. The future is yet in your power.

  • Some are common phrases of abusers, too. That too is about control and power, not love.

    Manipulation can be so subtle.

    three of these are legitimate in my opinion:

    4. “I WANT YOU TO STAY HOME BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT’S BEST FOR OUR KIDS. I JUST WANT TO TAKE CARE OF YOU.”

    5. “I KNOW YOU FEEL STRONGLY ABOUT THIS, BUT I NEED YOU TO DO IT MY WAY. IT’S WHAT’S BEST FOR US.”

    7. “I KNOW YOU DON’T WANT KIDS RIGHT NOW, BUT LET’S TRY ANYWAYS. I JUST WANT US TO BE A FAMILY.”
