You do not pick your parents, they’re given to you, and sometimes you need to give them back. A toxic parent or parents cause emotional damage and poison the way a child will eventually see and talk to themselves. The child will doubt their importance, their worth, and that they are deserving of love, approval, and validation.
Later on in life, you’ll find trusting relationships difficult. You may take failure very hard. You’ll have extreme reactions that confuse you. How about putting your own needs last? Sound familiar yet? You feel out of touch with your real self? Are you extremely critical of yourself? And even sometimes you feel responsible for your parent’s behavior.
If this is you, we’re giving you big hugs. If your parent is still in your life and still being toxic, you need to do something about it and now.
The below product placement example is for you.
