In the common parlance, mind games are referred to as someone trying to get control over your behaviour and actions through manipulating your mind.
That is the old adage. It requires a really, really weak person from within to be wanting to control others. Don’t get angry with them, forgive them. They are already piled up with a lot of hurt beyond our imaginations.
Let us devise a new mind game. Very interesting. Whenever a human being tries to control you or does something which you know is fundamentally incorrect, take time to reflect and get into their mind. They are really fighting so many battles, that the outside battle is just the tip of the iceberg. Have some empathy for them. Their anger is simply a cry for empathy.
Btw, you know what, this is the only mind game where you are assured of win-win.
