For whatever reason people like to play mind games, it simply is not worth it considering the possible and actual casualties along the way.

It can be much more straightforward but for whatever saddistic and/or self-defeating reason, some people decide to play with people’s feelings before they chew them up and it goes past the border of cruel at times.

There are people who enjoy and thrive in the inconsistent and volatile environment of game playing and they always seem to find people to play with or victimize.

Once we figure out their propensities we should spare no time in getting away from them even if we think we can beat them at their game, because it won’t be worth it even then.

It’s heartbreaking to walk away from these people if we care about them and it’s not easy but we must remember that in staying, we put ourselves on the line and it might not be worth it in the long haul.

It’s not to say that there are no other methods to deal with the situation. Certainly, addressing and calling off the game playing is an option and it might work if the mind game player agrees to do so for real. However, ultimately if it becomes an on again of again tale of cat and mouse, it might be best to waste no time and put one foot in front of the other and walk (or run) away.
