If you’re in a toxic situation for you, you can talk to a professional who can help you get better. Keep in mind that you may have also been in similar situations, so you may have more plausible advice based on experience. Don’t be afraid to seek help. There are resources and people that can help you change things. You don’t have to go through it alone! And in addition, follow the following tips.
This may seem like an episode in the twilight zone, but a good way to get your own life back is to stop listening to what the toxic person tells you. The toxic individual is excellent for using your flaws against him, and is almost always attentive to any weakness he may detect. Why give them the satisfaction of knocking you down?
If that person tells you that you have to have long hair, cut it! Let him realize he doesn’t dominate you and that you have your own decisions. If he tells you he doesn’t like tattoos and you do like them, get a tattoo! By rebelling against the little things, he’s taking power away from them, little by little.
Doing things your way carries a sense of satisfaction. Besides, you have to put yourself first… your happiness is more important than a negative person who always tries to depress you.
Always remember it’s NOT YOUR FAULT!
The toxic person will always try to tell you that any negativity you find in the relationship is your work. Well, they’re completely and absolutely WRONG! Love is part of the human condition… and it also tends to be blind most of the time. We can’t help but be attracted to others, whether it’s a potential friend or a potential partner for life… moreover, we don’t choose which family we are born into.
So, what would this be your fault? You didn’t ask this manipulative and abusive person to enter your life. However, it could be so simple to blame everything on destiny. You are trapped with a person in your life who is sucking your energy with his behavior and you feel helpless, so you blame an invisible entity instead of where it really belongs.
While you can’t help but think it’s unfair to blame the toxic person for their problems, it’s the right thing to do. All you’re responsible for is the power you’ve given that person. Blame where he belongs… with the toxic person. Simply put, they’re hurting you in ways you can’t imagine because it makes them feel better about themselves.
You haven’t really done anything wrong. It’s not your fault that the toxic person is not happy with himself, so never take the fault of his insecurities. Leaving a toxic relationship will never be easy, but you must be willing to work hard. Soon, you’ll see the shadows of gray dissipate into the inviting blue skies of happiness you’ve been craving for so long. Take control of your life and continue in the pursuit of happiness.
