Monday Mindset ; Sherrie Campbell, PhD
Toxic people are loyal to only one person; themselves. It is frustrating from the outside to see them seemingly getting their way and destroying relationships with no remorse. They say they want healthy relationships with us, as they are in the process of crossing every boundary every person in their life puts in place. Severely character disordered people aren’t capable of loyalty.
They don’t care about relationships lasting. If they had that type of concern, they would have to consider the needs and feelings of others, and this requires far too much effort for them. The way they choose to show up in their relationships is to betray, manipulate, sulk, gossip and play games.
Never be jealous when a toxic person moves on to “love” someone else. That new person is their next victim. Hold the mindset that toxic people will always take the easy road. The road they take is to blame the real victim and exonerate themselves. Let them play this game… without you.
