I don’t believe everyone is intending to be hurtful or that the world as a whole is an evil place. I don’t think everyone is self-serving and lurking in the shadows waiting to take advantage.
I do think I attract that type of person. I have strong codependent tendencies. I have been aware of that for a long time but haven’t really addressed it.
Struggling now with changing my reality, adjusting my perceptions of me and viewing my life from a more loving heart. This is more difficult than anything else I have ever done or endured.
