Some people don't want you to grow, heal, or change. Some only want you fractured, ignorant, wounded and trapped inside the familial dysfunctional that taught you to abandon your self-respect for the sake of "love" and "loyalty". Some people cannot tolerate the you that begins to repair self-esteem issues, the you that not only becomes educated, inspired, but empowered to assert boundaries that will no longer allow or tolerate abuse (of any sort), the you that identifies personal violations and isn't afraid to say "no" or walk away from toxic relationships. Some do not want you to change, because you changing means the beginning of the end of their control and influence in your life. Take back your power and grow anyway!
P.S. Give them a taste of the sweet middle finger of wholeness, self-love, and the manifestation of greater purpose. You're worth more, trust me, and the ones who love you don't want you to shrink yourself (nor do they attempt to shrink you) in order for them to feel secure within themselves.
