One of the most common questions I get is from individuals that have toxic parents. Their parents are over controlling, often times meddlesome, and habitually step over boundaries with very little consequence. This is obviously a source of great pain for the individual that is dealing with a situation like this and because we were raised with the idea that blood is thicker than water it can be very difficult to move on from it.
What it comes down to is the idea that you have a choice in your life. After all, it is YOUR life. If you believe you may be dealing with toxic parents, it’s important to look closely at what you’re tolerating. If the boundaries you have set are continually trampled into the ground right before your very eyes, it may be time to cut the cord. It may be time to break up with your parents.
