I am so used to having hateful stuff said to me, done to me, written about me, lies told etc, by abusive types…
That I am now able to deal with it, in a pretty calm manner now. And just see their issues and not react. I know it’s about them, not me.
Sometimes, I feel like saying…..’Is that all you got!?’
Except I don’t, because that just encourages their darkness.
I don’t have to tolerate their issues, and I decide what kind of response is required, if any. But, I definitely see their issues, as I can pick up on them so easily.
I am definitely toughening up. I said in counselling I needed to toughen up, be more resilient to harmful people, but in the right way, and I am.
