Emotional Manipulation

Hi Brooke,
I have listened to your podcast on Emotional Manipulation and I have realized how much my parents have used it with me. The most confronting was to realize that I had inherited from this from pattern and was sometimes unconsciously trying to manipulate emotionally people around me, and especially my boyfriend. Would you recommend me to talk openly about it with my boyfriend and to apologize for having tried to manipulate him or would you recommend to pay attention and fix my behavior from now on?
Thank you in advance for your help!
