@bluberrycookie The therapist just said "it's not that you're attracting toxic people, toxic people aren't picky, they go to everyone, you letting them stay is the issue that needs to be worked in" and this makes so much more sense than that "you're broken, that's why you're attracting broken people"

It makes you in position to actually do something. 👍
I like it

If it doesn't work maybe it's time to change therapist :)

@tfb @bluberrycookie This has been my experience as well. Toxic people will take the low-hanging fruit: whomever wants to deal with their dumb ass. Most people *don't* want to deal with them. It's an easily solved problem in theory at least, just by avoiding them.
