Sitting here and listening to the morning radio.
They are speaking about manipulation and are having an expert on the subject in studio.

I just realiced that the reason that I want to cut back on the information
I give out to others is that I feel manipulated by certain individuals.

I have always been an individual that is easy to manipulate
and manipulators have probably flocked to me because of that.

Anyway because I have been more assertive lately some people around
me have become increasingly frustrated.
Or let us just say the ones that are manipulative have become more frustrated.

One can say that assertive behavior is almost a thermometer for maipulation.

By assertive I mean calmly stating my intentions, opinions, wishes and desires
regardless of others reactions. And regardless if others agree or not, make my own decisions.
