You may never have heard the word, but you certainly have experienced the drama and discomfort of being pulled into a three-way dynamic that didn't serve your interests. Whether it was an elementary school experience of being rejected by your best friend in favor of another kid, the adult experience of having a partner cheat on you (or allowing yourself to be seduced into a messy affair), or the all-too-common situation of toxic three-way workplace back-biting, you've experienced the pain, drain, and confusion of triangulation.
For some people, triangulation is a bad habit learned in families, one they unconsciously import into their romantic and personal lives. For others, triangulation is a well-honed tool of manipulation. People who have the traits of Borderline, Narcissistic, and Anti-social (psychopathic) Personality Disorders use triangulation to disempower, control, and manipulate you, while putting them in the driver's seat.
This short, clear, direct book focuses on triangulation as a tool of manipulation by people with toxic relationship patterns. It describes what triangulation is, how it works against you, why people with personality disorders use it against you, and what you can do to protect yourself from toxic triangulation dramas.
Written by a psychotherapist whose work has helped hundreds of partners, family members, victims, and survivors of toxic relationships, this up-close look at triangulation is designed to be the quick and revealing crash-course you need to understand this particular toxic relationship pattern and to empower yourself to stop it. When you do, your relationships, your life, and your sense of confidence and peace with yourself will quickly and remarkably improve.
