I just read this on a poster and now I can’t find it.
It went some thing like…
“Abusive people have a distorted view of reality.
Even if they were given the best toy in the world,
they would still want to break it.
It has nothing to do with you.”
I totally understand this quote and agree with it. Which makes it sound like it is not personal.
Their reasons to abuse..
Are indeed, nothing to do with us.
But the abuse and the life long consequences, are.
It is their victims, who endure their dark issues,
and the pain and suffering because of it.
It is personal. To us.
Especially, if we loved them.
