Your perspective will determine your future.
It’s not always them. Sometimes you’re the toxic one in your life.
Toxic parents are often very dominating, abusive, and manipulative and only want their children to dance to their tunes.
Blaming your parents not only keeps the wound alive, it also tells your subconscious mind that your parents currently have power over you or your life, and, therefore, blame programs you for disempowerment.
Being a black sheep in the family can be an emotional and psychological struggle. But it can also come as a blessing in disguise.
Do you ever feel like you had a very normal relationship with your children, but when they became adults, estrangement happened?
“Narcissists don’t see their children as separate people that have a right to experience life from their own angle. There is no option in their heads in which the kids will be in charge of their own lives ‘unaided’ by the narcissist.”
― Diana Macey
You have all the rights to break up with your parents as an adult, even though it might seem selfish.
If you were emotionally or physically neglected as a child, it can be a difficult journey to heal.
