#94: Dealing with Manipulative People

I’ve had people in my life use manipulation to create leverage that allows them to achieve their goals.  But there is a way to handle these situations effectively to keep yourself in check.  On this episode we discuss:
  • Who is challenging/manipulative in your life
  • Why people resort to manipulation
  • Don’t get sucked in
  • Focusing on your breathing
  • Slowing down by asking questions
  • It is NOT about YOU
  • Let go of anger and resentment
  • Rebuilding trust
  • Ask for what you need
  • Be prepared for people who are difficult
