Accepting someone for who they are.
Forgiving someone for their shortcomings.
That’s fine. Nobody’s perfect.
But tolerating their unethical behaviors; Allowing their dramas to invade your life; Welcoming their negativity.
You must, by all means, protect your life. Defend your fortress at all costs. And make sure your loved ones are safe. Through and through.
Doesn’t matter if they’re family members. Doesn’t matter if you owe them your life.
If they don’t respect boundaries, then they don’t deserve any minuscule amount of your attention. Toxicity is deadly.
Your well-being is your utmost priority.
Inner peace is the ultimate goal. Nothing else.
