Counselors Melanie Vann and Melissa Richards join Kenneth Reitz and Kristin Sunanta Walker to discuss manipulation tactics used in every relationship. When does word salad become abusive? When it turns into Gaslighting. What is triangulation and how do we deal with being in a one on one relationship where you suddently become a trio.

How are we motivated to behave in relationships? How do we use these tactics in order to stay in a relationship that's become unhealthy? Does that mean we have become an emotional abuser in order to stay afloat in a relationship that's become emotionally unsafe?

We discuss Triangulation, Word Salad, and Gaslighting in depth and why it is not always a narcissist bringing your wounds to light.  The label of narcissism is not always fair and should be used with care.
