Throughout my life, I’ve seen many people badger their partner into agreeing to things. I’ve seen them twist their words and trick their partners into agreeing to things. I’ve seen people gaslight their partners, lie to their partners, or any number of other manipulative tactics in order to get them to agree to conduct the relationship on the terms that they want. Who really ends up happy in these situations though?
I enjoyed this article for the open discussion on how manipulation affected this person.
