Scheming people play games. They are so Machiavellian! Their object is to fool or undermine folks with manipulative ploys. Sometimes, it works; other times, it doesn’t. The solution is simple: Be man or woman enough to confront the issues. Don’t be the person behind the mask. Stop using other people to do your dirty work. Stop being a coward. Grow up! People are not your puppets. In fact, it is disrespectful. Dangling people on your so called strings may give you power and control. Just remember that one day, the strings may break; the roles may change! Who knows! You may one day not be the manipulator; you may be manipulated!
