Not everyone deserves to be in your life! It's not being haughty or self centred. It's just SENSIBLE!! Not everyone has good intentions and not everyone has worked on themselves to the point where they can be fully respectful of your needs and wishes. And even if a person isn't inherently bad, they can still cause havoc with THEIR unhealed, unconscious shit. Stuff they are not taking responsibility for!! So no. Let NO ONE dictate your terms. Manage your boundaries as you see fit
You Deserve Quote
Good advice! you deserve a family of origin who love you. and if they don't... walk away. learn from their actions and NEVER treat your own children the way you have been treated. use it as a learning tool, shake off the bullshit, ignore the lies and walk away. maternal narcissism destroys families. no contact.
