This is something that can happen to anyone. Don’t you dare think that you would ever be immune to such manipulation and abuse. And it doesn’t even have to happen in just a romantic relationship. It’s perfectly possible that you would have workmates, friends, or even family members who would be so willing to just use you for what you can do for them.
They employ all sorts of manipulative tactics just to get you to do what they want you to do regardless if it’s convenient for you or not. You say yes to a simple favor every so often. And before you know it, the favors come in a little too frequently. You’re being used.
User-friendly people are everywhere. And they can make for really toxic people to be in relationships with. They generate so much imbalance and the relationship can feel like it’s just too much to bear. You would never want to subject yourself to the abuse and manipulation of anyone – most especially not in a romantic relationship. That is why you want to make yourself aware of the many signs that someone might be using you and what you need to do about it.
