Today we’re talking about toxic parents and family members, but everything here also applies to toxic relationships, so stick around if that speaks to you.
Loving someone doesn’t always mean having a relationship with them, just like forgiveness doesn’t always mean reconciliation. Reconciling, in many cases, only sets people up for more abuse. A significant part of healing comes with accepting that this is a part of life; there are some relationships that are so poisonous that they destroy one’s ability to be healthy and function best.
Our guest today is Dr. Sherrie Campbell. a licensed psychologist, nationally recognized expert, and inspiring author.
She clarifies how parents, adult children, siblings, grandparents, and in-laws can be toxic while giving direction on how to explain cutting ties to children and others who may not understand.
Today we will learn:
- The difference between toxic and non-toxic people and how to tell the difference
- The lifelong affect toxic relationships have on you
- How to start building back your confidence in the aftermath
