As a child, we are pretty poor at identifying predators around us. It’s often in retrospect that we discover what they did and how it was manipulative. You would think that in adulthood we would be much more accurate at picking out predators, especially for those who have been victims as a child. Unfortunately, that’s a naïve thought.
Adults still run into predators, befriending them and bringing them into their lives, without any thought that they need to guard their heart. So many of us still are unable to discern when it comes to recognizing predatory people. We could avoid a ton of heartache and pain if we had a better understanding of the traits to look out for when creating new friendships and relationships. Spare yourself from engaging too deeply with a predatory person and learn how they can be manipulative, narcissistic sociopaths.
Learn these eight signs so that you don’t get caught up in an abusive and predatory situation.
