"Narcissist abuse. I was married to one. Well said!" Said the previous pinner. I say run don't walk away! Trying to follow my own advice, so hard when it's ones sister, but I refuse to expose my children to her destruction. She has tried to lure them in. Nope game over!
You can’t live a positive life around negative people. Ignore these people and move on from them when you must. Seriously, be strong and know when enough is enough! Letting go of negative people doesn’t mean you hate them, or that you wish them harm; it just means you care about your own well-being. Because every time you subtract negative from your life, you make room for more positive. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2013/08/01/7-negative-people-you-need-to-ignore/
I've had to deal with toxic people all of my life and they all end up acting the same. I can take responsibility for my actions and admit that I sometimes speak out of anger, I'm human, I make mistakes. But I won't play games w/people who can't/won't do the same. I don't have the time or energy for that kind of drama.
We have an internal strength that will carry us through anything life brings our way. Friendships help develop that inner strength. Read about it here: http://www.drdebcarlin.com/the-friends-we-share-life-with/.
Giving in to a controlling person might feel like "keeping the peace" for the moment, but it's actually starting a very toxic pattern. Each time the controlling person gets what they want you to do, that gives them a little more power over you for the next thing they'll want from you. Trust me, this pattern will continue over and over again. You will eventually be worn down and under their control.
.. push the button - they tried so many times. Little that they know, that rather than allowing it to affect us, we just hand it to God and let Him take care of it. It's the best thing to do when dealing with people like this.
