Ever feel controlled and not sure what exactly is happening? You are probably under the radar screen of a manipulator. Just how do you loosen their grip? Read on.
1. Become aware of what they are doing
Identify the persona and their behavior. For example, are they sending out negative vibes, directed at you? Pinpoint what they are doing.
2. Decide you are stronger
Someone can’t hurt you or bring you down unless you let them. If they are trying to make you feel guilty, try to be objective and just watch the words they use and their gestures. Focus on that will give you perspective.
3. Confront them
Diffuse the situation by stating your truth, expose their behavior and let them know you are on to them.
