When I was in my late teens and early twenties, I had tunnel vision and expected life to be a certain way. I studied my failures until I lost sight of my successes. I surrendered my dreams to feel a sense of comfort. I held tight to my fears and shielded myself from love and happiness by refusing to put myself out there. And as I did all of this, I sat back and wondered why life was so miserable. Obviously, I was very lost. My own toxic beliefs and ensuing behaviors had gotten the best of me. But after some extensive soul-searching, lots of reading, and diligent daily practice, I learned to do things differently, and I found myself again. I tell you this because I know you struggle with similar inner demons – we all do. Sometimes the ideas and habits we get comfortable with end up killing us inside.

Here’re the common phrases manipulators use, as well as how to stop them in their tracks: #1 “You are acting crazy.” They want to get into your head as well as make it seem like you do not know what you are talking about.

We all have experienced those people who spew venom. We wish that they weren’t on this planet, or at least not on our side of the planet. But sometimes we have no choice in the matter and we have to deal with them. How do we keep them at bay? Here are a few things we can do and say in response to their toxic behavior. 1. “Are you talking to me?”   Confront them and put them on the spot. 2. Ignore them. Their ego will not know what is going on, and they will likely feel disturbed. 3. “I’m sorry you feel that way.” No you aren’t, but say you are. Let them see that they can’t get to you. 4. “You must be having a bad day.” Here you are being gracious to them, putting yourself in their position. They won’t know what to make of it. 5. “I will not stoop to your level.” Let them know you are annoyed, but don’t lose your cool. If you do, they will only try harder to unearth you because they see that they are getting to you. See more:           5 Smart Comeback
