Make the manipulator justify itself. Point him in his place, force him to take an exculpatory position. If he starts to defend himself, he will not be able to attack. But be just and strict in moderation, so as not to make enemies.
Attack with retaliatory manipulation. Respond to enemy offers with your own terms. Just make sure that he does not understand what is open, otherwise the method will not have an effect.
Think for yourself! Do not take opinions from outside. Calmly think it over for yourself and come to a decision. The main thing - do not forget that they want to influence you and your thoughts.
Fight the manipulator. Hover the nebula on your decision so that he does not know what to expect. At the manipulator respond with capacious phrases. Repeat them whenever you feel that you are being squeezed. Do not doubt whether your rights are violated.
Infinitely specify. You will get the manipulator's embarrassment and time to come to the senses.
