Those who claim to love us are often the ones who toy with our minds, manipulate and coerce a belief that somehow, we cannot actually “trust” ourselves. When that someone chooses to fabricate a memory and is unwilling to see the truth, and another individual remembers an event differently than they do, whatever they must do to disrupt said self trust ensues, so they can then implant their own version of the event.
This type of manipulative behavior has been happening for centuries. Some of us were raised by a person or persons who practiced this manipulation, and being children, it was easy to screw with our minds, to make a scrambled mess of our emotions.
However, as adults, we can stop this from continuing. We can say NO to future attempts, we can shut the door and refuse to participate.
It is sad that for so many years of hoping for truth, for some semblance of reality to slip from a loved ones mouth and actions, it should come as no surprise that lifelong habits will never be broken.
Rather than pouring energy into something that has proven, decade after decade, not to change, it is important to utilize that same energy and change what we can, and it starts in our own mind, our own heart.
It is not necessary for continued exposer to those who have no capacity for understanding us. What is needed though, is a constant effort to understand our self.
The journey to truth, honesty, and integrity is a tough one, it is not a path that many take.
The future is rapidly approaching. Changes will occur whether we participate or not. Do we want to be in partnership with these changes? If so, then we must pay very close attention to details, speak the truth as we see it, and not be swayed by another’s attempts at manipulation. It is also equally important not to attempt to sway someone else’s views. Everyone is at choice.
We all choose how we will tackle life, whether in action, or in thought. Yes, it is easy for us to be manipulated and maneuvered, IF we are not paying attention.

Delayed reaction will present a more definitive awareness.
Breathe, hold, wait until you have a chance to digest a situation (if you can), then act.
