As a caring person, guilt will hit you hard. It is your kryptonite.
With it being so hard-hitting, the best way to manipulate you is through guilt. And the people closest to you will know exactly how to do it.
Look out for 'never mind, I'll do it myself', and, 'I can't believe you wouldn't do that for me', and similar. You're having your guilt strings pulled.
Make no bones about it – guilt is a common tool used to manipulate – more common than you wish to believe is true.
If guilt-inducing comments and behaviour come up often, it's up to you to get wise to it and stop it. The manipulation gets deeper the more you fall for it.
