Dealing with these sorts of character especially in intimate relationships is immensely draining because they use all manner of emotionally manipulative tactics like guilt, silent treatment, fear as tools to hold you captive so that they can endlessly receive from you.
You, caring so much about how you are perceived or what others think makes you a perfect victim for their endless demands.
Know and come to an understanding “that you matter”, you also have your own needs.
Make yourself a priority treat yourself with respect.
Understand that no matter how much you give, its never going to be enough anyway. So why kill yourself.
Take care of your needs, or you will inevitably come to resent the people you love.
- Consider the Opinion of others as they sometimes might have something genuinely constructive but do not allow your life to be governed by them.
