Now for the long-awaited Flow Part 2.
Number of people extremely excited about this: 1 (Me)
Decided to return to it with a bang. This time I addressed the whole manipulator issue in a recording (you may notice a small difference with my previous recordings 😉 ).
I briefly talk about the various types of manipulators I have come across in my life.
Manipulators I mentioned in the recording:
*The Scorekeeper – “I helped you that other time, so you have to help me now”
*The Fearmonger – “Do what I say, or I will make your life a living hell”
*Triangulators – “It’s us against the world. There’s no one but me you can trust” (This and Fearmonger really get to me)
*Gaslighter – “You don’t remember saying those words because you’re not the one who got hurt. But I remember you saying them, so it’s true”
*Ultimatums – “Honestly, the only way I see you having fun this weekend is if you come to my party. You know you’ll be bored at home”
As always, comments are welcome 🙂

Conscious manipulators are the worst. All those types, there is none less worse than the other.
In my case, though I have never done this yet, I think the bast remedy is to call them out, tell them what they’re doing is wrong and refusing to hear out their b/s excuses.
Manipulators don’t stand a chance to explain themselves.
You’re right Mary 🙂 . Thank you for commenting.
