Family is anyone who loves you unconditionally.
Even if you’re empathic towards family, you are accused of being uncaring for not putting others, especially the narcissist first.
When someone was being abused for longer period of time, they may believe or trapped by this way of thinking.
They may think there’s no hope and they can never turn the table upside down, in such, they behave passive, helpless and conform to the toxic relationship / abuse.
Other victims may fight back because their lives are controlled on their own hands, they make a choice to leave the toxic relationship / abuse, learn and motivated to strive.
There’s a saying ” if you think you can, you can; if you think you can’t you can’t, both are true!”
Which type are you?
Only the weakest takes advantage of a child’s innocent.
Children of toxic parents could have PhDs in justifying why their parents treated them so badly.
Feel out of touch with your real self. Many children of toxic parents find it exceptionally difficult to identify who they are once they grow up.
Some parents are completely undeserving of their child’s love. It’s not automatic. As in any kinds of relationship. It must be earned.
You noticed any child acting like this?
Even in workplace, I worked with people who always laugh for silly jokes or minor / non-sense things.
At surface, they seem happy for live and optimistic for everything, but I just knew they are masking their insecure / shame and guilty by fake happiness.
That’s why we heard stories from time to time, mentioning this or that person seems happy all times but how come they commit suicide or doing horrible things to others suddenly.
What do you think? You met someone like this?
