I've Come To The Conclusion: that for true healing to take place, the person needs to see that his or her personal truth (how they really feel about themself) is not true -- through the process of healing, they need to come to truly believe that they are good enough, worthy enough, and deserving of love and acceptance -- just for being who they are. A human being has inherent worth and value solely because they exist.....

Thoughts?... Opinions?.....

@pickone What you wrote, "Toxic people must feel they're in control -- they refuse to let those they're close to, become autonomous," could not be more true! I'm glad I work at home, because when I read your words I screamed, "YES!!" That is exactly how it feels to be around toxic people. When you try to become independent, when you are your authentic self, they will punish you using their manipulative tactics (silent treatment, guilt, criticism, projection, etc). That is how it was growing up in my house, and that is how it was when I was in a relationship with a narcissist. The only way I've found to freedom to be myself is to cut off contact with toxic people. There is no room for growth, compromise, etc with them. It's their way or the highway, so you have to choose the highway!

@KinD I had the same experience -- I'm sure that if I was still around my family, or had any contact with my ex-narc husband, I never would've gotten to the place of healing I'm at now. I don't believe you can fully heal from the toxic effects if you continue to be subjected to the toxins.....
