I had a conversation with a friend of mine the other day. We were discussing when people manipulate you. The first time they do it does not mean it was a mistake or a one and done. No! That means they are testing you to see if they can get by with it. To see if they will get caught. That’s what they do.
They never take responsibility, they blame circumstances and other people but never themselves. They don’t value people, no matter what you do for them. They seek out empaths with kind and generous hearts and exploit their qualities. They create drama and then play victim to circumstances. It’s all part of the calculated, manipulation plan. They respect no boundaries. They expect you to set yourself on fire to keep them warm. Don’t ever think it’s a one time deal. It’s a test for you and a try for them. You know the saying, “ happens once, shame on you, if it happens twice, shame on me.” #dealingtohealing
