What causes people to become manipulative? Where does it come from? Mostly it comes from anxiety. People anticipate catastrophic losses in some cases. So, in an effort to control their own environment, and stay safe, and meet their own needs, they try to get other people to give them what they think they can’t get for themselves.
There are many of us who have had terrible experiences as children/ young adults… who do not resort to manipulation as adults.
Perhaps, this is the realization that this isn’t the right way to go about things or treat other people. It is never too late to stop manipulating and realize we can count on our own resourcefulness and God- given strengths.
