Top ten comebacks for manipulative people

What to say when someone is MANIPULATING YOU
Manipulators achieve their goals by persuading others to do what they want by indirectly influencing someone else’s behavior or actions to suit their agenda. At first, they may appear to have your best interests at heart, but really it’s all about them.

They know how to find your weaknesses, and once discovered they will continue to use your weaknesses against you. When they have figured out how to get you to do what they want, they will keep exploiting you until you put a stop to it.

A manipulative high school girl was constantly creating drama with friends. Sonja always wanted to be the centre of attention. She badmouthed other girls in the group behind their backs and turned friends against each other. One day when Sonja wasn’t around, the group started comparing stories and shared horrible things that she had said about every single one of them. They realized she had played and manipulated every single member of the group.

A manipulative person can take a real toll on your life. Here are a few snappy comebacks you can say to let the manipulator know you are on to them.

Top Ten Comebacks for Controlling People

How to respond to someone who is being CONTROLLING

People who try to control your every move do so because they are insecure. You may be with a controlling person if they constantly criticize everything you do, isolate you from your friends and family, and try to change you while squashing your self-confidence and self-esteem.

I knew a flight attendant whose boyfriend, Dazza, would call her twenty times a day wanting to know her every move. Isabelle had to call him before going out because he wanted to know where she was going. If she didn’t tell him beforehand, he would get very angry. After a couple of years of his controlling behaviour, she received a phone call from another woman, who said that she thought they had the same boyfriend.

Isabelle didn’t think it could be true. She went to the woman’s house, and there was a picture, taken on vacation, of her boyfriend and this woman cuddled up. There were messages from him on her answering machine saying how much he loved her.

The crazy thing is Dazza was just as controlling with his second girlfriend as he was with Isabelle.

Here are some snappy comebacks to let the controlling person know that you are not interested in being controlled or told what to do.

  8. Everyone has a right to an opinion, and I have a right not to listen to it.
  9. Go find someone else to control because you are not controlling me.
  10. People often forget that it is your own choice of how you want to spend the rest of your life.

What to say to a hypocrite

What to saying when someone is being a hypocrite

Do you have a hypocrite in your life, someone who conveniently forgets their own faults while happily pointing out yours?

Hypocrites have one set of standards for themselves and different standards for you. A high school girl, Nelly, continually badmouthed other people, stirring up drama within her class. If anyone else talked badly about someone, Nelly told them off and said it was wrong to talk about people. The weird thing was she couldn’t see that she was the worst offender.

These snappy comebacks will let the hypocrite in your life know that you are on to them and are not interested in putting up with their double standard.
