Sometimes, you just have to face reality, and move on.
When people consistently behave in a way that is unhealthy and harmful, you have to accept they won’t change. But you don’t have to tolerate it. Or personalise it.
People, are people. Most behaviours are a reflection and projection of their own issues. Mostly these issues they don’t even see they have. It is often pointless even trying to point their issues out (even if they are quick to point out yours), because they will not accept it. Again, this is their issue. There can be no resolution or closure with certain minds/souls.
And unless it is my immediate family, it’s not my job to point their issues out, or fix them, or anything else. But, if it is consistent and continues despite asking for it not to, then moving on is necessary. And sticking with people, who don’t behave this way.
All part of boundaries and self care, self esteem, self worth.
