A message to all bullies who treat their victim(s) like they are worthless, then play the victim when they are confronted for their abuse, and act stunned when people want to end the relationship with them.
Red Flag #6. Lies & excuses. There is always an excuse for everything, even things that don’t require excusing. They make up lies faster than you can question them. They will always blame others—it is never their fault. They spend more time rationalizing their behavior than improving it.
This could not be a truer statement. You're caught stealing. Then, instead of doing the right thing and admit what you did, you start blaming other people - because nothing is ever your fault. EVER. The mistakes don't make you a bad person ... the fact you don't own what you do and you try to drag others to your level does.
Always wanting to blame other people for your failures. And telling people I'm afraid of you, won't answer your calls/texts?? Really bitch? Keep telling those lies if you need to sleep at night. We both know your weak, insecure ass doesn't have the balls to call/text me ever again because you really don't want to know the truth about how many other girls there were. You just want to pretend and play victim.
Manipulative people latch on to empathetic targets and exploit their innate qualities. They find people who are easy-going, gentle and kind - who avoid conflict and seek to make others happy. The Problem: They reciprocate none of these things. Instead, they feel entitled to your constant forgiveness and self-blame. If you set boundaries or say no, you will be punished for reacting to their abuse. Toxic people constantly look to blame the victim.
