Being an empath can be tough on a good day, but add in people who try to manipulate you or control your emotions and you are in for a rough ride.
Emotionally manipulative people try to gain power or control over others by using sneaky, deceptive tactics to change their thinking, behavior, or perceptions. They will lie, guilt, bully and use passive aggressive techniques to maintain this control as they systematically erode the self confidence of those around them.
The signs of emotional manipulation are often subtle, especially in the beginning, but over time become more and more controlling and vicious. Because most manipulative partners or parents are masters of disguising they're overwhelming need for control, it maybe difficult to recognize these types of controlling behaviors. The motivation may come off as real love, but usually your body will send you a signal that something isn't right, especially if you are an empath. You may have a physical reaction to the manipulation, become ill or experience anxiety attacks. Listen to your body and put boundaries in place.
Remember, we all deserve healthy and happy relationships. You do not have to settle. If you would like to discuss this further, I’m here to support my empath brothers and sisters.
