Six Constantly Flying Red Flags That Should Tip You Off to Hijackals - Dr. Rhoberta Shaler
You're been in the relationship for a while. Maybe, it's even your parent! Or, a new partner?
Or, you're waking up to the fact that you simply cannot please your partner because s/he WILL NOT be pleased, no matter what you do!
Your partner may be a #Hijackal®.
Your partner may have narcissistic behaviors and self-centered motives.
Your partner may have anti-social behaviors.
Your partner may incapable of empathy, and therefore, incapable of real love.
You need to know these six red flags!
These constantly flying red flags--and really, they are always there when you know what to look for--and how you can look at them differently to see how destructive and damaging they really are to your sense of self. Oh, and of course, they create impossible to enjoy relationships, too!
I create the term, Hijackals®, to give us a way to talk about the patterns, traits, and cycles of difficult people without the necessity of psychological diagnosis. A diagnosis won't help you deal with them, but knowing what they are up to will.
Here's my definition: "Hijackals are people who hijack relationships--for their own purposes--and then scavenge the daily for power, status, and control." Sound familiar? You need to know if you are with a Hijackal!
