Whenever Aunt Alex hears this, a little part of her soul dies: “It hardly even bothers me anymore. I’ve gotten so used to it.”
Friends, if you find yourself saying this and staying with a narcissist because you’re numb to some of the abuse, please — hie thee to the Army Boot Camp. It is not healthy to be adjusted to an unhealthy situation. And situations don’t get any unhealthier than trying to work with a toad.
If you’re used to bad treatment, that’s a soul-crushing place to be in your life, and I for one won’t have it. Get to work on your exit strategy, and soon, you’ll be toad-free, relaxed, and fulfilled, saying, “You know, this good life, I’m getting used to it.”
