The manipulator’s logic

I didn’t get the results I wanted, therefore I feel bad.

I feel bad, therefore something is wrong with you.

Something is wrong with you, therefore I have the right to make you feel bad about yourself.

Now that you feel bad about yourself, you owe me something.

Because you owe me something, you need to cater to my feelings until I decide to release you from my prison of blame and resentment.

Read and reread the above five statements.

Every single one of them is based on flawed logic.

By “flawed logic”, I mean “socially acceptable bullshit.”

If you can see through the bullshit in the above statements, you will be free from the bullshit that manipulators and victimizers bring to your life.

At least that’s the way I see it.

  1. 4 out of your 5 “flawed logic” sounds like bullying, which in many cases should not be socially acceptable bullshit. Many people think that bullying only happens within school type situations (elementary, junior high, and high school), but it doesn’t, it takes place in home type situations and even work places. Bullying is a socially acceptable bullshit because every person experiences it, and in turn almost everyone sends off some form of bullying.

    At least, that’s how I see it.


  2. This is the sad way I lived the first half of my life. I’m so glad I came to see it for what it is, and stopped dishing out this kind of rubbish. I finally stopped accepting it too (which took a little longer for some strange reason).
