We must decide to stop giving our power away.
We must refuse to be motivated or manipulated by fear, obligation or guilt in any relationship.
And we must be willing to speak the truth as we understand the truth, and to set boundaries which offer consequences to bad behavior. We must make it a habit to speak the truth because truth has a way of erasing toxicity.
For example: “Ah, I see you’re putting me down again! I suppose you feel safer being in the one up position!”
Your reply: “Let’s take a break until you can get a handle on yourself.”
