"Emotional blackmail happens when a person equates his or her emotional pain with another person's failure to love. They aren't the same.

Emotional blackmail says, 'If I feel hurt by you, you are guilty.' There is no defense. The hurt person has become God. His emotion has become judge and jury. Truth does not matter. All that matters is the sovereign suffering of the aggrieved. It is above question. This emotional device is a great evil." - John Piper
