1) Being Disrespected
Tolerating disrespectful behavior indicates to others that you have zero respect for yourself.This allows people to get comfortable disrespecting you. Never compromise your boundaries or principles.Instead ,either address their disrespectful behavior , or respect yourself enough to ignore them and walk.
Never tolerate disrespect,not even from yourself
2) Abuse - Of Any Kind
Abuse takes on many different forms. Being abused in anyway whatsoever is wrong,and it should never be justified or tolerated.Abusive people are bullies.Tolerating abuse empowers the abuser , because you are actually permitting their abuse to continue.Refuse to contribute to the abuse by either standing your ground & standing up for yourself ,or totally remove yourself from the situation.
Nothing you do or say warrants abuse
Negativity is toxic to your life ,whether it comes from your own negative thoughts or negative people.It's contagious, and just brings your mood persistently down. Replace negativity with positive vibes & positive thoughts.Surround yourself with positive people.The type of people who inspire you and brighten up life
The less you respond to negative people,the more peaceful your life will become
4) Being Taken Advantage Of
Allowing people to take advantage of you lets them call all the shots and have control over your life. It's okay to make some sacrifices and compromises now and then,but it's also paramount to set boundaries.Be assertive,and learn to say "no" at times.When people realize you aren't a pushover,they'll adjust their behavior.They will treat you according to what you tolerate
Make sure you understand the difference between being kind,and being taken advantage of
5) Controlling Behavior
Some people like to dominate every aspect of your life.But remember,you are an individual. A person with your own way of thinking ,behaving and dressing. You have your own opinions and views. So never allow anyone to have the power and control over your moods,thoughts,emotions and state of mind.Don't become a hostage to someone else’s control,or they'll take complete control over who you are as an individual . This will eventually lead you to lose your own identity
When a person attempts to control some else's life, it only reflects the lack of control they have of their own
6 ) Manipulative Behavior
Manipulation is an emotionally unhealthy psychological strategy used by people who have absolutely no regard for other people feelings and lives. Like abuse,there are many different forms of manipulation. Manipulative people are masters of deception,and they draw you in and ensnare you with their cunning manipulative tactics.They persistently test your boundaries,and prey on your vulnerabilities, emotional sensitivity, your empathy and compassion .The best defense against a manipulative person is to KNOW YOURSELF. Get to know yourself more than anyone else knows you. - Identify your own vulnerabilities ,weakness , insecurities and tune into how you are feeling. By doing so, you'll develop a psychological advantage. Manipulative people are highly perceptive ,and they home on your weaknesses and vulnerabilities.So be very wary of anyone who starts to home in on your weaknesses.Establish and maintain boundaries at all times ,and learn to firmly say "NO".If you find yourself doing things because you feel guilty;responsible ;afraid;obligated or ashamed,it's highly likely you're being manipulated.Once you have identified someone who displays manipulative traits , it's best to cease all contact with that person ,and cut them out of your life completely.Or at the very least have limited contact with them.
When we do not know our true identity,we are susceptible of being used and manipulated
