Quote of the Day

Emotional blackmail is a powerful form of manipulation in which people close to us threaten, either directly or indirectly, to punish us if we don't do what they want.  At the heart of any kind of blackmail is one basic threat, which can be expressed in many different ways: If you don't behave the way I want you to, you will suffer.  

-- Susan Forward with Donna Frazier, Emotional Blackmail, p. x
