Manipulation

People who crave power consider “others” to be naive. They smooth talk you, they get your confidence and they ruthlessly devour you of your trust. You become pawns in their hands and when they have had their fill they leave you bereft and helpless. Know yourself and get to know others before giving them access to your inner circle. Talk is fodder, what matters is honesty and accountability.
