But tell me! I can't live my life in this constant confusion. Don't want to talk? Cool! Tell me! I'm a big girl! I'm stronger than you'd think and more stubborn then you'd ever imagine. I have felt things that were beyond intense. Believe me I'm not frail. Just tell me.
That is so true for my parents, my mother especially. Playing the victim card is essentially playing to someone’s guilt. The number of times she exclaimed: it must me horrible to be my daughter! Of course my sisters or I would immediately give in on whatever the argument was, and assure her she was a wonderful mother. Toxic people like narcissists and sociopath use emotional blackmail and manipulation to control their targets.
