Here are a few phrases you might find people trying to use to manipulate you (or vice versa).The reason for this , is to stop you feeling the emotions that you are experiencing .In other words , another method of control-unfortunately we all do it to a greater or lesser extent :


  • It 's for the good of the firm , family , religion , yourself
  • It's for your own safety ( Health & Safety )
  • Tears ( politicians & women – sorry ladies )
  • I do so much for you – I have to do everything –you should be grateful . ( Victimhood )
  • It's all your fault
  • You're being oversensitive
  • You let me down
  • Think of people worse off than you ( eg the starving in Africa )
  • I'm right
  • I need or I want
  • I'm so angry with you
