You can quote us on that…

“Difficult people tend to violate your psychological safety and project their dysregulation onto you.”

Dr Rebecca Ray

“We’re looking at someone who over time predictably behaves in such a way that it makes you feel emotionally unsafe.”

Dr Rebecca Ray

“Don’t let difficult people take up rent-free space in your head even when you’re not in their presence.”
