Components of Emotional Blackmail

The issues may differ, but the tactics and actions will be the same, and clearly recognizable.
1. Demand–someone wants something
2. Resistance–the other does not feel comfortable with the demand
3. Pressure –used to make the resistant one give in
4. Threat –to turn up the pressure
5. Compliance–on the part of the resistant one
6. Repetition–this pattern reoccurs in at least other situations (just with a different name)
