The Key To Spotting Abuse

Healthy people value consistency, predictability, connection and communication. Healthy people feel horrible if they have hurt another person and are willing to do whatever it takes to fix it. Unhealthy people, on the other hand, are impossible to predict. There is always something hidden going on behind your back, there is no consistency in who they are from one moment to the next, and their actions rarely match the grandiosity of their words. They are word-magicians and pride themselves on being in control and unaffected by anything. Don’t be fooled. These types of people are hypersensitive to when we start cluing into their patterns and inconsistencies and begin confronting them. They become defensive and abusive any time it is brought up. To stay healthy ourselves, we must become very clear on the difference between an actor and a person of true character. A person who is genuinely good-hearted will be kind to everyone, not just the people they stand to gain something from. A genuine person is not built upon a set of false pretenses where they change personalities as a way to get what they want. If you are living in constant confusion and feel as if your relationship with someone boils down to a delicate egg-shell walk, you are not in a relationship with a healthy person. These are your signs that you need to get out. Once you recognize the unhealthy patterns and find the courage to let go of the toxic person, you open your life to find the healthy loves and experiences you desire and desrve.
