“Will you accept me for who I am? Will you accept me not just for my good qualities but with all my faults and imperfections too? Don’t try to change me to fit some preconceived idea of how you think I should look and act. If that’s your intent, let me go.”
Sadly, to many people think they can get into a relationship and then try to change their mate to conform to their picture of the perfect relationship. They see potential. There’s a darker side to trying to change someone. It’s extremely manipulative and inherently evil.
Narcissists and gaslighters may try to change an emotionally healthy person for sick controlling reasons. In personal and/or professional environments, they manipulate by controlling relationships, including telling others how they should think, feel, and behave under their unreasonable restrictions and scrutiny. They often become critical, angry, intimidating, and/or hostile toward those who fail to bow down to their directives. Gaslighter manipulation is often highly aggressive, with punitive measures directed toward those who fail to recognize and obey their self-perceived authority.
