A healthy relationship, even with those people you find toxic, requires the space to maintain your personal integrity. Most people will respect you for your boundaries, values, and assertiveness. Of course, relationships are a two-way street, but not so with toxic people who don’t understand where you end and they begin. Chances are that people […]
