They have a way of just making you feel wrong about being the person that you are. Instead of you feeling proud of yourself, they just put you down. They try to diminish and degrade whatever confidence you might have.
5. They tell you that your feelings are invalid.
They tell you that your feelings are entirely invalid. When you express displeasure at something that they’ve done, they tell you that you’re just overreacting. They wholly invalidate any thoughts, feelings, sentiments, or opinions that you might have of them.
6. They use your feelings of guilt against you.
They know that they have the power to make you feel guilty about whatever shortcomings you might have. And they know that they can use this against you as well. After all, they are masters of manipulation. And they are interested in getting you to do exactly what they want you to do regardless if it’s right for you or not.
7. They make the same mistakes over and over again.
No matter how bad it might make you feel, they aren’t shy about committing the same mistakes over and over again towards you. They prove their insensitivity, and they don’t care that their actions can have negative impacts on you.
As difficult as it might be to let someone you love go, it’s necessary sometimes. You have to love yourself before you love anyone else. After all, you always have to be the priority in your own life. That means that if someone isn’t treating you in the manner that you deserve, you need to dump this person altogether. You should always be looking after your well-being. And if someone ceases to add value to your life, it shouldn’t be too hard for you to decide to walk away from that individual.
