Many times, we get manipulated in our relationships and we don’t really pay attention because we would be blinded by the emotions we have for them, or by their genius manipulations tricks that make us unaware of their games.
Emotional manipulation is one way to show control and power over other people, and it is not a healthy way to build any relationship. It is your duty to be careful in order to protect yourself and guard your heart against being hurt by someone who is playing nasty games to own you.
Of course, there are many things you can do to prevent being the victim, but most importantly, you need to learn when you are being manipulated or truly cared for. As long as you keep your eyes wide open, you will never fall into the trap and will only be building healthy and strong relationships.
