When toxic people leave your life, or you decide to get them out of your life, you are gifted the time and space to self-reflect on what you learned and to see where you need to grow to become stronger. If you skip the self-reflection process, you will repeat your pattern of attracting toxic people into your life over and again.
Life is hard after toxic people exit because they have twisted your head in a million different directions causing you to doubt yourself and your perception of things. It takes time in self-reflection to right yourself in the direction of what you know to be the truth of your experience.
Take the proper time to heal. Take the time you need to trust that you are not and were not crazy. Take the time to recognize you were abused and in what ways you were abused. Taking this time helps you see what you need to see in others to keep yourself safe.
