In this episode I discuss the intersection of compassion and unconditional love and healthy boundaries.
Having compassion and love for someone is nice, however, it becomes toxic if doing so if you are putting yourself in harm’s way. Your compassion and love is incomplete if it does not include yourself. You can have compassion and love for a toxic person, but this doesn’t mean that they need to have open access to your life. You can have compassion from a place where you are safe–and you can still have compassion and love for a person and be “no contact” with them.
My goal is to educate, empower, and inspire other abuse victims in understanding more about what happened to them (and how to prevent it from happening again), as well as how to go on and rebuild an amazing life.
Even though I have had a lot of "in the trenches" experience with highly manipulative people of all kinds, I consider myself to be a student of Narcissism, mindset, motivation, healing, and life in general, and am by no means an expert on any of these topics.
It's for these reasons, that when you are reading my information that I encourage you to hold to what helps, and let the rest go.
