Having been exposed to these types of Individuals, it then becomes very difficult to believe that others have no agenda for your company or interaction. It's very hard to believe the veracity to their innocence. Jading

No. I've always known it was happening and any time I didn't, must not have yielded much because I have been tricked nearly zero times in my life.
Sounds like a you problem.

Took me a long time to walk away from the manipilation. Forgave the person but he showed no remorse.

Well of course. That's why people that are aware of social interactions and wanting people to relax, smile at their conversation partner. It eases the mood and projects kindness and warmth. That's why we're always told to smile. It changes more than people realize. 😉

Whats annoying is when you have a friend or family member who is being lied to by someone and you known it for a fact and that friend or family member doesn't believe you but instead believes the person who is lying.

While I see that it could be helpful in giving hopes to some folks who may have wondered whether they have no hopes, I just hope this doesn't get used to justify child abuse, or to justify telling survivors to 'forgive', 'move on', and 'be grateful'.

But Sarah also credits her upbringing for giving her the observational skills of a master spy. She can sense when people are hiding something from her, and her reading of the power dynamics in any room comes as if by instinct. "I can see how people stand in relation to each other in an instant," she says. "I can see where fear is coming from, where openness is coming from."

There are no pat answers. We are all as varied as snow flakes and to make generalizations about what will be paradoxically beneficial due to a negative upbringing is merely conjecture. The research studies cited are unconvincing and weak. I find it patronizing and annoying.

I found that the best way is to quite trying. We can't change others we can only change ourselves. Some people are not ready for personal growth. Some people are not ready to live their best life. Walking away is the only option sadly. You can't find peace wrapped up in their drama.
05/21/2017 at 21:18
I think it's important to consider your own peace and happiness in a situation like this.
If it is not healthy or productive to try to 'get through' to someone that is treating you unkind, I say love, yourself, first and love them from a distance.

The list of reasons why single people are "good" is so ridiculous! 😂 Single people are actually good for not creating another relationship that ends, and if with children, ends worse, and this creates jaded and broken people. Broken people end up creating more broken people. Staying single after difficult relationships just reduces the extra hurt, miscommunications and consequences of crappy relationships.

I am too much of a loner to be a successful wife. I have always been an introvert. As a child my parents had to make me play with other children. I prefer solitary pursuits such as reading and writing. I am horrible in romantic relationships. I am an awful girlfriend. Sometimes I get lonely, but I am often more lonely with someone who doesn't understand me than I am when I am alone. I am glad that I live during a time when it is acceptable to never marry.
05/21/2017 at 18:33
You shouldnt have to celebrste being single, just be ok with it. No need to blow it out of the right mindset. Sometimes in your life youre going to need to be alone snd reflect on things, mabey even work om yourself a bit, theres also times to share with someone special.

When we were young, the quantity of friends was prioritized. As we get older the priority is the quality. Best to have one or two good friends than twenty or more superficial two faced friends.

When we're in the childhood,teens,and early adulthood moments, friends are important,hanging out together. But when we reach middle and late adulthood,we prioritize our families. Family can be our friends too.

Trusting your guts is a thing. Finding the evidence of the cheating is the real challenge and where the nightmare begins. Losing faith on your partner day by day is one of the most frustrating situations nobody talks about, and this process consumes you.

I like how arguably the most important part "finding a partner who is lower in narcissism and higher in conscientiousness" was only mentioned at the end as an aside. 😒
05/20/2017 at 23:18
I've been told I have a masciline voice and actually been approached a lot in my life and then comments made about it. I have however NEVER cheated. When I'm in a committed relationship, ALL eyes (both actually, I only have 2) are for her and her only. I will always try and act as if she's sitting right next to me...

Oh ffs, more women do it because it's considered the cool thing to do now. It's getting there with young males also, but not to the same degree yet. It's not about the psychology of the sexuality and the blah, blah, blah. It's about an anything goes, free for all of sleep with whoever you like, be whoever or whatever you want to be, the more outrageous the better. It's about an absolutely out of control society. But yeah, nobody will call it that. They'll all analyze the psychology of it...

In the journey of life we need to learn the full definition and spectrum of our own person values (like caring, fun, confident, intelligent, etc etc etc) in order to understand where we personally sit on that 'pendulum'. Once we do that we can find the perfect mate, OR we and the partner we are with, grow together and find ourselves in the same spot on the pendulum ... if you're lucky.

But when someone is right and you're interested in being right for them. That"s what counts. There's a certain level of maturity that has to be present for this to be recognized.

Call your mother. For most of us, this is the person who loves us the most and has our back. Look in the mirror. Write a love note. List your accomplishments. Clear your desk. Do 5 minutes of exercise. Meditate or pray. Fix your hair and make-up. Etc
Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.

It's certainly true that people who divorce are more likely to do so again. However, the opposite can be true. If someone's been through a bad marriage and come out the other side stronger and wiser, then they're more likely to meet a person who they're able to settle down with as they've learned alot about themselves and as a result, won't make the same mistakes as they did before.
