That’s Just How I am

This is one of the greatest excuses a toxic person has. They use this excuse like an ultimatum. It’s like saying I know I am abusive but I don’t care and I won’t change so you have to deal with it if you’re going to be with me. When they say “that’s just how I am” believe them. Do not try and convince them otherwise, do not try and help them see the light, do not try and change them. They love watching us try and fix them. It’s an emotional sport for them, watching us try to love them even after they have warned us that they are who they are and have essentially told us to leave if we are too weak to handle it. Our weakness, not what is is wrong with them, is what is essentially communicated when they say this to us, and this is exactly how they trap us. No one wants to feel they left someone they love because they weren’t strong enough to love their abuse. See through what they’re saying for the truth…they’re admitting their toxicity…believe them and leave.
