Persuasion Versus Manipulation

Last week I heard something I liked. The difference between persuasion and manipulation was given as follows: Persuasion is inviting the other person to see things your way for the mutual benefit of both parties. Both people should walk away feeling like they got a win. Manipulation is using the other person to get what you want, regardless of their feelings or their best interests.

I will no longer allow myself to be manipulated or knowingly manipulate others.
