Manipulative people do whatever they can to make you feel bad, guilty or ashamed. If you know they’re doing something wrong, they will skillfully turn it around and convince you that it’s your fault.
They purposefully string you along using delay tactics. How they do it is sometimes impossible to figure out, so it’s time to learn a bit more about their methods and what you need to look for to avoid the “stringing along” they tend to do so that they can keep getting their needs met by using you. For a deeper exploration on learning about this subject, listen to this episode on the Love and Abuse podcast: Are You With a Manipulative Person?

During the outro, I talk a bit more about manipulative people.
