Some facts on emotional manipulators. 1. They can't be trusted. No matter what you say, they'll turn the situation round so they seem like they're a victim & have been unfairly judged. 2. They leave you feeling crazy or mixed up & confused. They'll twist your words & motives so you feel misunderstood & they rationalize their actions so you seem unreasonable. 3. They're great at making you feel guilty or "bad". Nothing you can do or say is ever right to them.
