There have been a lot of toxic and abusive people in my life.
They have all assumed and demanded I respect them, yet they have no right to demand that.
No-one has to respect someone who is abusive, toxic or harmful.
And also applies to family, partners, church people, work colleagues, other abuse survivors…. anyone.
Respect is earned and people do need to earn my respect and my trust now. I do no longer blindly respect or trust anyone. I now know, it needs to be built slowly, over time, when the person concerned demonstrates behaviours and attitudes, that are worthy of respect and trust.
