i am thankful for all those difficult people in my life. they have shown me exactly who i do not want to be. Hypocrites and the like who act one way at school and behave totally different in their homes. People who believe in one thing but act another.
This is super hard to learn for anyone that has been through a narcissistic relationship. they make you believe they "really" need "you" and yet are just expert sociopaths and manipulative liars with the most charming personalities.
And that's exactly what your past is.your past. We do not bring it up, think about it or the people who are attached to it because we are each other's today and tomorrow. Why dwell on about the things and people that do not matter?
