Backstory on Hijackals

Back in 2018 I had the pleasure of introducing the concept of Hijackals to radio host, Emma Breacain on her show “Through the Eyes of Women”.

That show is no longer on the air, but I found the interview audio and thought I’d share it with you here!

We had a great talk, and here’s how Emma summed it up:

We’re always mystified. Even though we’ve all experienced it. One day you’ve got a great relationship with a person who makes you feel like you could fly if you set your mind to it, then suddenly a switch has been flipped. Nothing you’re doing is right. You’re second guessing it all, desperate to fix it. Have you failed with this relationship? Are you unfit for society? Doomed to a life of lonely ineptitude?

Or have you met a hijackal?

“Hijackal” is a term coined by Dr. Rhoberta Shaler to name the malignant, sociopathic narcissists crashing through our lives like the proverbial turd in the punch bowl of our homes, workplaces and wallets. Sometimes, they just need us to feel lousy so they can feel good. Sometimes, they’re manipulating us with larger goals of control that can extend into parenting, careers, finances, every corner of our world. Either way, the harm they do is real.

No need to live in fear! We don’t have to look under every rock for a hijackal, and we don’t have to tolerate them. We just need to arm ourselves with information. Good luck!
