“When a toxic person can no longer control you, they will try to control how others see you. The misinformation will feel unfair, but stay above it, trusting that other people will eventually see the truth, just like you did”.
This describes a lot of people who have been in--and then been pushed out of--my life. Several of them do not eventually see the truth, but that's not my circus nor my monkeys. And that's all I have to say for today.
