Quote of the Day

Emotional blackmail flourishes in a fog that spreads just below the surface of our understanding, like a bank of clouds under an airplane.  As we descend into the blackmail zone, a thick mist of emotions swirls around us, and we lose our ability to think clearly about what the blackmailer is doing, or what we are doing in response.  Our judgement becomes hazy.

-- Susan Forward with Donna Frazier, Emotional Blackmail, p. 39
