People confuse their unhealthy enabling or making excuses for toxic people….. with love, or compassion.
It isn’t love, or compassion, to enable. Or to make excuses.
I see people online trolling, who like to suggest enabling, is okay. Often they are doing this, to provoke a reaction. Which is trolling in itself.
Like with any type of abusive person, they need to know their behaviour is not okay, people can be angry and annoyed, and they should face consequences.
If people are going to act like nasty bullies, then they should face being treated as that, and face the consequences.
These are choices, they make. They choose the behaviour, then they choose the consequences.
Enabling them, is not helping them. In fact, this cripples them and stops them facing any need to change and make healthier choices.
It is not love, or compassion, to be a doormat to toxic behaviour.
It is not love, or compassion, to make excuses, for what is very intentional harm.
It is enabling and encouraging toxic behaviour.
And that is not wise.
