I would eventually grow so tired of hearing his bullshit that I’d just give up on trying to make a change. Maybe next time. Rinse and repeat.
How My Best Friend Sexually Assaulted and Emotionally Manipulated Me for A Year
Roslyn Talusan

Thank you for writing this. I have encountered a manipulative ‘friend’ this year. Things were traumatic, but fortunately they did not go as far. There was this moment which I, like you, gave up (for the first time in my life) on my free will and told him he could do whatever he wanted. I was so glad that I backtracked on my statement immediately when my words hit the air. That’s how fucked-up a situation can sometimes go when we try to deal with a manipulative person with both compassion and faith in humanity.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
