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! Dangling people on your 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!
