Wow! I loved this list.
I had to end a relationship due to its toxicity. It made me very sad but the degree I felt controlled and judged was too much. She’d recommend I take a particular action, (i.e. “I think you should stop dating.”) and then later assumed it was my idea and was critical if I hadn’t followed through (i.e. “I thought you said you were going to pause your dating?”).
Such a strange experience.
I think it’s rare for someone to have insight into themselves. It takes loads of ego strength. But what a life changer if they can see themselves realistically.
Thanks once again for great article!
