There’s always some truth behind just kidding. Knowledge behind I don’t know. Emotion behind I don’t care, and pain behind it’s okay. So pay close attention to how people feel. It’s why I like to hang around mute people. They don’t say much. And that’s okay.
Screaming at children over their grades, especially to the point of tears is child abuse. Pure and simple. It’s not funny and it’s not good parenting. It is a crushing, scarring and disastrous experience for the child. And that’s why my kid doesn’t go to school.
You don’t ever have to feel guilty about removing toxic people from your life. It’s one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and makes an effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings , ignores your boundaries and continues to treat you in a harmful way, they need to go. That’s where the shotgun comes in.
When someone treats you like crap, just remember there’s something wrong with them, not you. Normal people don’t go around destroying people’s lives. They get married to each other and focus on destroying the offspring they bring into the world through the miracle of birth.
Toxic people make you think you’re holding a grudge when you’re really holding a boundary. Narcissists don’t change because they don’t want to change. They want to keep on using and abusing because it gets them the attention they so badly crave. That’s why I pay attention, it’s my intention that they never truly heal.
At any given moment, you have the power to say this is not how the story is going to end. In fairy tales, there is always a Prince Charming and a bad guy. In real life, Prince Charming is the bad guy. Break free from the delusion. If you have to enforce your ideas, your ideas are worthless.
People who claim that they’re evil are usually no worse than the rest of us. It’s people who claim that they’re good, or anyway better than the rest of us, that you should be wary of. Insanity is doing the same thing, over and over again, but expecting different results. Insanity runs in my family.
It practically gallops
