What Happens When….

Toxic people want control. Over everything. Throw in narcissism and the pot is heated. Add some children to the mix and you’ve created a full scale boil over of someone who is jealous of the children, works overtime with manipulation tactics on them and you; but you’re one step ahead if you can begin their recovery as soon as you come to terms with the fact that they-like you-are being abused. That word is ugly, terrifying and even embarrassing. And the toxic ones have created that shame in your environment.

It’s not your shame. It’s their own and they don’t want the responsibility or accountability because they are not wrong. In their world, the rest of us are the scapegoat.

So find help. Counseling, coping skills, church, support groups-one step at a time can save you and your children long term.
