Many abusers are extremely manipulative, and getting people to like them is a skill they flaunt in an effort to gain what they need. I’ve seen my ex lose his cool on so many people who’ve eaten out of the palm of his hand on the same day, it’s really quite a marvel if you view it in the realms of human psychology. But as tempting as it is to “out” my ex to the people I see fending for him as a wolf hiding in sheep’s clothing, they’ll have to discover it on their own. It hurts to know that I can’t protect others from the very guise I helped to manifest, but my self-preservation has to come first.
