8 Crystal Clear Signs You're in Love with a TRULY Difficult Person, a Hijackal

Ep. 67

Are you tired of being wrong? #Hijackals--those relentlessly difficult toxic people in life--cannot be wrong, so everything HAS to be your fault.

That's exhausting, right? And, of course, it's not true.


If you stay with a #Hijackal for long, you may begin to second-guess yourself too often. You may question your sanity. Or, you can get so worn down and torn down, that you don't have any self-esteem or self-confidence to call on for much. Let's stop that, ok?


Now, is the time to tune into these eight crystal clear signs that the person you're loving--the person you are hooked on and hope loves you--is NOT THAT PERSON you thought they were. In the beginning, they did all they could to "get" you, and usually as quickly as possible. It was dreamy. Now, it's a bit of a nightmare!


You've bent over backwards to accommodate their needs, wants, and desires, and you're left bent, crooked, and out of shape emotionally. That's not right! That's not fair! That's not healthy!


#Narcissists do this all the time. They suck you in so they can spit you out. You don't want to leave because they have you hooked, so you take their verbal abuse, and you may not even see all the emotional abuse they are dishing out, too.


I want to help you with that. If you're ready to make better decisions about your relationship, let's talk. Right away! BeAClient.com

Have You Experienced Abuse Without Acknowledging it? Times UP!

Ep. 66

Being abused is a BIG deal! Not recognizing it is also a BIG deal.


Often, when it happens when you are young, it becomes buried in the fabric of your life and you don't realize that you are operating from it. That happens too often.


Maybe, you've downplayed the emotional abuse, or any other kind of abuse, in your mind to somehow make it alright, or at least, tolerable. Maybe, you've made up excuses for the other person. Or, worse, you've taken on the blame for the abuse on yourself!


No. The very best thing you can do for yourself is to get some help to take a detailed look at your life, and see what really happened to you. Start with the insights and questions in this episode, and journal your thoughts.


Emotional abuse can make your life darker. It's limiting, and enclosing. You need to be free from it, and that begins with recognizing the emotional abuse.


This episode will definitely help, especially if you take the time to reflect on the questions. You deserve to do that. YOU MATTER!

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!

HIGHLIGHTS OF TODAY'S EPISODE:

  • Six red flags you see way too often but may be missing
  • Why you need to learn to be strategic in the relationship
  • How to get some perspective on what's really bothering you in a difficult relationship
  • Why you may keep telling yourself "It's not so bad" and why you need to stop


Don't worry. Other episodes will definitely help you get out of the Hijackal®Trap, and out of the relationship if that is what you want to do.


You deserve to create a life that is calm, peaceful, creative, and productive. A #Hijackal wants to be sure that you do not.

No emotional safety when you're in a relationship with a Hijackal!


Once, you recognize this, you'll need more information to change that. You'll find that in many other episodes of this podcast, and on my YouTube channel, too.

What is "The Hijackal Trap?" Am I Caught in It?

Ep. 64

Are you caught in The Hijackal Trap? You really need to know, so you can make clear choices.


The Hijackal® Trap is often very hard to recognize because it is often subterranean, deep in the murky areas of the relationships only showing up every now and again. Or, maybe, it's showing up increasingly frequency now, and you need to know right away.


You get glimpses of it in confusing early moments in your relationship, and if you're like most people with a desire to be in love, you ignore those glimpses because you want everything to be wonderful, solvable, and moving in a great direction towards one another. Right? That's the way it's supposed to work. It doesn't work that way with #Hijackals, sadly.


The Hijackal Trap is illusive. Now you see it. No, you don't. And, because you don't really want to see it, you likely ignore it or make excuses for it when it does raise its ugly head.


You're listening today because you know you are tired of feeling put down, worn down, or torn down...and, usually all three!


Hijackals--those relentlessly difficult people with the patterns, traits, and cycles shared by those with narcissistic, passive-aggressive, sociopathic, histrionic, psychopathic, and borderline tendencies--can be very charming. For sure, they are full of immediate excuses for the their behavior. Worse, though, is that the have a tendency to make everything your fault! Familiar?


You'll know if you're caught in The Hijackal Trap very soon. I think you're suspecting it's true, right?

Why You Shouldn't Go Back to a Hijackal® & How To Stay Away Dr. Rhoberta Shaler

Ep. 63

You're out! You likely took a long time to make the decision to leave the narcissist, or in my terms, the #Hijackal. You also likely talked yourself out of it more than a few times, right?


Then, you make your move for all the right reasons. It's difficult AND you do it.


Uh-oh! Now, you're second-guessing your decision, and beating yourself up a bit. NO! Please don't!

Remind yourself that you left for all the right reasons.


Not so easy when you're feeling unsure, alone, and maybe even a little helpless...at least, once you're in your new place all along. Right?


That's when the doubts creep in, You wonder if you did the right thing. You start romanticizing the past and remembering only the good parts. Oh, I know, I've been there, and I left, too.


So today, I'm talking about understanding what may be driving you to think of going back to the abusive relationship. I give you SIX practical and immediate things to do to stay on the path of leaving, and keep yourself on an even keel while staying away. So important for your growth, self-esteem, and self-confidence!


Every client I have who has told me stories of leaving a #Hijackal and going back has said how much s/he regretted that decision. Some of them actually left a couple of times before they moved away for good.


It's not easy, because you're emotionally addicted. You may not like to think of yourself in those terms, but basically, that's what has been going on.


To break any addiction, you have to go through a rough patch. If you go back, you have to go through the rough patch again. Not so smart, right?

4 Scary Reasons Why Unconditional Love May be a Dangerous Myth

Ep. 62

Oh, my! I can imagine that for a few folks the title of today's episode caused them a brief moment of near apoplexy!


No, I didn't choose it for its shock value, nor did I choose it to be controversial. I chose it because there are a few things about unconditional love that you may not know, and maybe, you may have a little blind belief that to be a "good" person. you must strive to be unconditionally loving to all people at all times. Not so.


Before you set your hair on fire--or want to do that to mine...lol--please listen to the whole episode.


It is NOT heresy. I am a deeply spiritual person and I've led several spiritual centers and organizations. I am very familiar with the constructs and demands of unconditional love. So, I feel I'm a good person to give you this food for thought.


I've covered the four ways in the highlights section below, but each one requires explanation and that's what I've done in the episode.


I really, really, really hope you'll think about these things, after listening to the whole episode. You'll find it relieving and freeing, I hope.

5 Ways to Keep Your Courage UP While Leaving a Difficult Person, a Hijackal

Ep. 61

You've left, or you're close to leaving. It's scary!

Sometimes, you're so sure you need to leave. Too often, you're second-guessing yourself.


I hear clients, and people in my groups, say, "I want out of this relationship, no matter what the cost." And I understand that too well. When there is physical or sexual abuse, you may need to leave immediately.


You're saying, "I'm at the end of my rope and I don't have the energy or will to tie a knot! I've been there. I know.


I also know, though, that that's when you have to find the energy to re-focus on finding your way out of the relationship with the best interests of yourself and your children in mind. And, that means summoning up the energy to stand up on your back legs, and get what you deserve.


So, today, I'm offering you five essential ways to keeping up your courage, while ending your relationship AND saving your sanity, self-esteem, and self-control. YOU CAN!
