For some people, just living their lives is not enough, they need to destroy other people's lives as well ;ren.
From emotional psychopaths, compulsive liars, sociopaths to narcissists and all manner of abusers, there is a special breed of people who feed their souls by hurting other people and they become ”manipulators” called.
You see, they have a PhD in manipulation and it is easy for them to control any person in their presence.
But of all the people around them enjoy controlling women in love the most.
First they promise you eternal love and affection, then they entangle you in their web of lies and begin their manipulation.
Over and over again until you lose your mind. And I have to admit they're damn good at what they do.
Well, in case you didn't know; here are some of the most common manipulation methods that all abusers use to bind their victims to them forever.
1. Gas lighting
If they gaslight you, they will literally brainwash you into believing things that are not true.
They have such a powerful power to convince you that what you saw is not true and it is what they tell you.
They tell a perfect story every time and you can't tell them they are lying to you because everything they say makes so much sense.
They twist your reality and repeat the same lie many times. And the more they repeat it, the easier it will be for you to believe it.
It's one of their favorite tactics and they use it on every single victim.
< h2>2. They say everything is your fault
No matter what you do, they will always blame you. If there is something wrong with their life, you will blame it.
For every single problem they have, they will just come and say that you did something wrong.
To them you will never be perfect, you will never be loved enough and you will never be respected as you deserve.
They will brainwash you so much that you will are unsure of your skills and abilities.
It will make you build walls around yourself and not let other people into your life. You will be just a shell of the happy girl you once were.
And whatever you say won't be enough unless you stand up for yourself and take some drastic steps.
3. They never answer your questions
If you are 100% sure they were wrong this time and you tell them that, they will blame you again.
They will say that you are asking unnecessary questions and that they don't want to talk about it.
They will play the victim and you will feel remorse. And do you know why they do it? Because they know that you are a good person who cares about others.
And they know that you are not so cruel as to hurt people you love. You will never hear them answer a simple question and they will always try to find excuses for their actions.
4. They say they know you better than you know yourself
You see, that's just a way they're trying to get inside your head. You'll think they already know what you're going to say or do because they're going to tell you that.
Every time you say you're feeling bad about something, they'll say that you always react that way in such situations and that they knew you would say that.
They try to make you believe that they are omnipotent and that they can read minds.
This trick keeps many victims in abusive relationships and their abusers make their lives miserable.
5. They threaten you
All types of abusers feel threatened when they see their false sense of superiority being challenged in some way. Therefore, they will use any means necessary to bind their victims to them.
The best way to keep someone who has lost their identity is to threaten them. The perpetrators will berate their victims and tell them that without them they are nothing.
They will even use physical violence to scare them. That way they will still be able to have someone under their control and feed their soul by damaging them.
And the worst thing is that the victims are too scared to run away from their abusers because they think that without them they are not good enough and that no matter how much they abuse them, they can't stop. know how to love her.
6. Are only nice for a short time
Once your abuser sees that you are difficult to manipulate, they will change their story.
< p>This time they are super polite, friendly to you and make you believe that they are all you need to have a good and happy life.
They will convince you that you don't need your friends and family and that they can take care of you. In this way they isolate you from potential saviors.
But they will only act like this for a short time and when they see that you are weak again they will use all kinds of weapons to attack you , so you never think about leaving them again.
They are very good at playing these sick games and it's not easy to break free from their clutches.
