Do you feel like you have to walk on eggshells around your partner? Or that the wrong phrase might set them off?
Are you unhappy in your relationship, but can’t bear to pull yourself away from it? Do you feel inadequate and sometimes deserving of the treatment you get?Recognize that your partner is your manipulator and abuser - don’t allow them to force the upper hand.Mind Games
uncovers a host of underhanded, sneaky, and malicious emotional manipulation tactics
that manipulators and abusers use to beat you down and control you. We might all be able to recognize blatant abuse, but when we’re emotionally invested
, it’s tough to see the little signs that are in front of our faces sometimes. They’ll lead to you feeling worthless and vulnerable
, making it almost impossible to truly leave your situation.
In this book, I identify many common tactics that you may be intimately and sadly familiar with, complete with real life examples
for each to help you identify them in your daily life.
What emotionally manipulative tactics will you learn to identify and stop?
and telling you that your concern is an overreaction, or quite simply wrong.
* How the silent treatment
is used as punishment and forces compliance.
* Playing the victim
and how it transforms your issues into guilt and pity.
* Your abuser's time machine
and how they use it to their advantage.
* An analysis of the psychology
behind why your partner acts they way they do... and why you stay.
* Guidelines for how to deal
with a partner that is your manipulator and abuser.
* Why your abuser loves controlling you
, not necessarily you.
Emotional manipulation tactics are still abuse, even if there are no physical signs. Gain the knowledge and subsequent courage you need to leave your situation and find true happiness, not someone else's definition of it. Learn to detect when your abuser is not acting in your best interest, and exactly how they make you believe that they are.
