Emotional blackmail

Emotional blackmail

Emotional blackmail is the favorite weapon of manipulative people. One of its most common forms found in relationships is trying to make the other person feel guilty in order to induce them to give in to the desires of the manipulator.

“If you really loved me…” “How can you be so selfish?” “This is what I get in exchange for everything I’ve done for you…”

Who can stand such accusations?

If you don’t bring your relationship to the level of reason, you’ll continue being a victim (or a villain) of emotional blackmail.

Emotions are the wrong tool to deal with relationship problems. Bring your relationship to the level of reason: deal with the facts, understand what the real issue is, and deliberate on ideas and solutions.

Emotional blackmail only thrives in relationships led by emotional people.
