Have you ever crossed paths with an ex years later at a function and said to yourself. “Thank God I had the brains to get out of that.” It isn’t hard to imagine it happening if it hasn’t happened to you yet. There are so many things in my life that I am thankful for on a daily basis. Getting out of bad relationships that were both demeaning and toxic is something I am truly thankful for.
There is of course a certain irony when we see firsthand that what we thought that person would become actually does happen. It lets us know that we were right to get out, and save ourselves from possibly years of misery and disappointment.
For many men and women toxic people can slowly suck the joy and life right out of you, they affect your self esteem and self worth making you doubt yourself and your judgement. Hopefully if you're reading this and in a toxic relationship you will see that there is time and you can find your way.
Yes they will blame you for their problems, its a way for them to not look in the mirror. Here’s the thing, even if it seems impossible, and hard you are strong enough to survive. You would be amazed at the inner strength you find once you take that first step. Before you know it you will be living your own life finding yourself and become far more happy with life then you are in your current situation.
