I'm pretty sure you're looking for a "yes" to that. But nah, it doesn't. If you're a minor, yeh you'll run into that a lot. Hopefully, it's just a "I love you so I nag you" thing. Or they want you to learn on your own what they see is good for you, so they nuddddge a lot (manipulate) in that direction. Sorry, but we all had to go through it, so just suck it up and move forward. If you're an adult, you have more options. People can only manipulate you if you let them. Then, again, almost all interactions have some form of manipulation in them -- light or heavy. "Want some pie with your coffee? ... It's on sale ...?"
Hi. Yes. There is manipulation abundant everywhere there is emotion. In fact, you are manipulating your own emotion and your perception. If you asked one of the "accused" manipulators, you will find a different answer. People's natural reaction is to feel they are the favorite. We all need it. We all do it. You need to be your own favorite. As soon as you are true to yourself, you may feel differently. Have a great day and the world isn't in a conspiracy against you.
True love is the road to freedom. Read the Ten Commandments and you will see a description of how love works. For instance if no one stole anything we all would be free to leave our cars and houses unlocked and if no one committed murder we would all be free from fear of being stabbed in the back
