Food for thought - Abusive people

Beware the people who:
  • change their mind and are not consistent
  • use drama to draw attention to themselves
  • do not hold themselves to the same or higher standards as they do you (double standards)
  • can never tell you how they were responsible for what happened in their life (victims)
  • are threatened by others and try to control and isolate you
  • are verbally and are physically abusive and/or violent towards animals or people
  • praise themselves too much or say little good about others

"All blame is a waste of time. No matter how much fault you find with another, and regardless of how much you blame him, it will not change you. The only thing blame does is to keep the focus off you when you are looking for external reasons to explain your unhappiness or frustration. You may succeed in making another feel guilty about something by blaming him, but you won't succeed in changing whatever it is about you that is making you unhappy." - Wayne Dyer
