Remove the parasites
Never feel guilt about removing TOXIC people from your life.
It doesn't matter if that person is a blood relative, childhood friend, romantic partner, the mother/father of your children, a parent, a co-worker, or anyone who you at some point in your life were “close” to.
—You do not have to keep people in your life that cause you pain, make you feel inferior, lie to you, and belittle you.
It is one thing if a person owns up to their behavior and takes responsibilty for the things they have done, then they make a conscious and genuine effort to change. But if a person disregards your feelings over and over again, takes advantage of you, and uses you for their own selfish reasons, you must remove them from your life. These types of people will not leave willingly. They see any kindness on your part as weakness. They prey on those who they see weak. They ignore your request, they violate your boundaries and they are relentless in tearing you apart.
Remove these individuals - they will never change. They don't want help. They can't be cured, nor do they want to. They are toxic, infectious parasites. They will suck the life out of you, if you let them.
