Have you ever been manipulated by someone you thought you could trust? Have you had a relationship that has made you question your self-worth?
With all of these recent Netflix shows about con-artists, believing that these victims could fall for these scams may seem unimaginable. However, host Chrystal understands firsthand how an individual can become prey to a manipulative person. By walking through her past destructive relationship, Chrystal explains how gaslighting and abuse can change a person and make them ignore red flags they never thought they could.
Tune into this week’s episode of Self-Love for Breakfast for an honest conversation on manipulative relationships. Learn more about Chrystal’s experience with a toxic partner, why we attract the wrong people, and how gaslighting alters our reality.
- “Manipulation and gaslighting in a relationship can alter your reality, and no one can understand unless they have either been through it or are currently in it.” (4:37 – 4:53)
- “Maybe we’re attracting a bunch of people, but we zoned in on the person who is wrong for us and is exactly the kind of person we have been getting.” (15:18 – 15:29)
- “I know how easy it is to get sucked in by someone. You will listen to everything and anything that they say.” (20:08 – 20:14)
- “First comes the manipulation, and then comes the gaslighting. And the gaslighting is what alters reality.” (22:00 – 22:09)
- “We know women can manipulate and gaslight men. We know this. But let’s be real about this when it comes to domestic violence and abuse. Women experience it far more than men. And you can say, “Well, not all men report it.” Well, guess what? Not all women do either.” (31:09 – 31:29)
