In an abusive home, full of narcissistic and toxic behavior, you don't know who you can trust. Unfortunately, I have been extremely vulnerable and trusting in my life, despite knowing how awful people can be. Being a victim of what I went through, desensitized me to bad behavior. I could pinpoint it, but I would also stick through it.
I have come full circle with the horror I experienced as a child and how it made it "acceptable" or "normal" for me stay in friendships, relationships and relatives that were detrimental to my health, happiness and growth.
