People seem to have this idea about parents, that they’re protective angels who would do anything for their children. And whilst those parents do exist, sadly, they don’t seem to make up the majority. More and more people are realising that not only are their parents not the selfless protectors they should be. They are in fact selfish, hurtful narcissists out for all they can steal. But what can you do if one (or even both) of your parents are toxic? How are you supposed to have a normal relationship with people who care more about themselves than they ever will about you?
Scroll through your Facebook feed right now and tell me one thing. How many times did you see a post with the words "offensive" or "offended" in it? I bet it was at least twice.

“Bullies are just jealous.” No, they’re not. Bullies are not just jealous, they’re just jerks. They’re just mean-spirited, horrible people who want to make other people’s lives miserable because it makes them feel better, like they have actually achieved something. And saying that they’re jealous isn’t helpful. Neither is saying things like, “Just ignore them and they’ll go away,” because they won’t, trust me.
Unless you’re literally one of the luckiest people on earth, the chances are you will have or have had noisy neighbours. And I’m not talking about normal everyday noise with the occasional back garden barbecue.
Pretty much everyone will experience at least one traumatic event in their lives. But sadly, most of us will experience at least three or more. And these events can leave us with feelings of fear, sadness, anger, and confusion. These emotions can last a long time, and if they aren’t processed properly, they can interfere with our daily lives.
