Define your boundaries and stand by them.
As a healthy relationship advocate, I can tell you that manipulative people will always try to talk you out of your boundaries for their benefit. It doesn’t matter how smart, beautiful, popular, or handsome you are. No one is exempt from running into toxic, selfish personalities. Once you set your boundaries, let them be. Enforce them. Let them guide you. You set them for a reason and no one knows you like YOU know you.
