Translated Emotional blackmail: when the people your life use fear “Manijeh Sheikh Javadi” and published by Peykan Publications in 1987

“Susan Forward” has made a big revelation in the book “Susan Forward”‘s emotional blackmail.

It’s time to dump her and move on.
This book, which is subtitled “When Others Use Fear, Commitment and Guilt to Exploit You,” shows much of its content.

An overview of the chapters in the book Emotional Extortion
The book of emotional blackmail is written in four parts.

The foreword to this book contains the author’s personal experiences that encouraged him to write this book.

Here we get acquainted with real examples of emotional extortion and the general definition of this social and psychological phenomenon.

The first part of the book is “Knowing the act of extortion”. In this section we will learn how to detect emotional blackmail.

Then we get acquainted with six deadly phenomena in extortion and relationships between people.
In this section, the author introduces the methods of extortionists and, of course, the ways to deal with these people and their tricks.

The name of the second part of the book is “Transforming Consciousness into Action”. Now that you have a complete understanding of emotional ransom, it’s time to put that awareness into action.

In this section, the author introduces various strategies and methods to deal with emotional blackmail that can have a great impact on the development and improvement of individual and social personality.

The last word of this book is a short note from the author addressed to all those who now know about blackmail and have been able to make changes in their behavior and that of others.

The taxpayer gets caught one day.

We have to admit that we have all, at least a few times, blackmailed or blackmailed those around us emotionally.

We may not even know that these behaviors have a specific name in the world of psychology and self-discipline.

But we must know that by repeating this, sooner or later we will become a person who can satisfy his desires in the simplest possible way, through the exploitation of others. Of course, the flow is not that simple.

Do not imagine for a moment that if you are that ransomer, then you are a good person and you will be rewarded for your good deeds.
Unfortunately, the world and people are more cruel than you think. You are just a tool that drives the work of others.

Your dignity, personality and identity are not the least important in such situations.

But again, this is not the end of the story. You too will soon enter a complex and polluted cycle of extortion. You used to pay a ransom until yesterday and you owe a ransom today.

It does not matter if your requests to others are too small or too large, the important thing is the spirit itself.
The most painful part of extortion is when you realize that it is your father, mother, wife, children and close friends who are abusing you to achieve what is most pleasing to them.

Your personal rights, and sometimes even your desires, are sacrificed to the desires, or perhaps even selfishness, of others.

Human self-esteem and dignity are compromised in emotional blackmail, and human beings become creatures who can no longer trust anyone, thus disrupting even the natural order of human societies.

From the very beginning, the author of this book defines all the ins and outs of blackmail and reminds us in a fluent, kind, but serious and firm language in all the pages of the book that it is we who must stop the wrong and unjust way of emotional blackmail.
It seems that it is no longer a time for sympathy and empathy; The issue has become very serious and complicated and now the world has become a place where everyone wants to achieve what they want;

It does not matter what the cost of this arrival is and who it sacrifices.

This is where we read the true memories and experiences of people who have been forced to pay a ransom or even a ransom.

It’s a little unpleasant, but it may be a flip to review these events to bring us together a little and make the world a better place to live by improving individual and social behaviors.

In a part of the book, we read about emotional blackmail
What’s going on here? Why do some people give us the feeling that “I lost again. I always give up.

I did not express my true feelings. Why I can never express what I mean. “Why can I never defend my rights?”

We know we are always trapped. We know that we feel helpless and dissatisfied.

And we know that we lose what we want to please others.

But we do not know what to do. Why can some people exploit us emotionally and make us feel like losers?

The people who always force us to surrender are skilled exploiters who, whenever they get what they want, bring themselves very close to us, and if they do not get what they want, they threaten us or bury us under a heavy burden of sin.

Such people seem to have planned for our exploitation, while in most cases they are unaware of their actions.

In fact, many of them seem to be sweet and suffering people who have no intention of threatening us.

Usually a certain person – a spouse, parent, sibling, or friend – enslaves us so persistently that we forget we are an adult, and although in many other respects we are successful people, besides this People feel helpless and inadequate.
