In this week's show, we'll discuss the predictable patterns of relentlessly difficult people...and how to spot them. Once you know the patterns, you have the information you need to maintain your sanity in the face of crazy-making behavior.

Leaving a difficult person is usually, well, difficult. S/he wants power over you as throughout the relationship and divorce is no different. S/he ask for things they don't want, but don't want you to have...like the children. Navigating these shark-filled waters requires a guide. We'll help with this in today's conversation with Dr. Karen Covy, and talk about the finer points of the divorce process, and how to get through it with grace and dignity... and without losing your cool (or your mind...or the other stuff you want to keep).

Only then can you take your power back and feel good again.

What is a Hijackal, exactly? 

A person who hijacks relationships–for their own purposes–while scavenging them for power, status, and control.

They make you question your sanity and second-guess yourself constantly. That’s their game…and, they are very good at it!

Every time you think of being near a Hijackal®, you get anxious. Why? Because the main purpose of Hijackal behavior is to win.

Recognizing chronically difficult people requires admitting that they not only like to win, they have to win. Yes, to win…and in all circumstances and at all times. Yes, they will give you the illusion of agreeing with you…but, only when it suits their purposes, or their longer “game.”

Know one? I’m thinking you must because you’ve found yourself here on this page with me. You’re ready to escape the Hijackal Trap.

It might be your partner, ex,  parent,  co-worker, or someone in any organization–family, workplace, government, court, church, community project, board, or association.

We have all had interaction - at some level, at some time - with a Hijackal... whether we knew it or not. They are unavoidable. AND being in a relationship with a Hijackal - whether at home, work or play - requires some insights and knowledge to navigate and keep yourself safe and sane. 

Those are the things we discuss a lot here. Join us.
