Don’t be fooled by nice manners. What looks like politeness can be pretense used to sugarcoat aggressive, manipulative, or false communication. Look at the content; not merely the cover. In other words; pay attention to what the person is saying, and don’t be fooled by who he is or how he is saying it.

One thought on “Polished Manners

  1. So true. when you deal with a narcissist, like my husband and I have to deal with in his ex-wife, you have to be very, very clear about what messages are being sent and received. narcissists are excellent confusion, misdirection, and basically- chaos!
