I watch a LOT of women try to heal from a toxic relationship through hatred.
They demonize their previous partners, calling them names, diagnosing them with narcissism, and referring to them as if they are monsters and the scum of the earth.
It’s a very natural part of the process. There is a reckoning that happens. There are moments of clarity when we realize the depth of the mistreatment and abuse that has taken place. There are moments of deep grief and betrayal. It is natural to get ANGRY. It is natural to turn to HATE for the person who wounded us so deeply.
