A lot of people are too young to run away from toxic parents.  What can you do in the face of relentless criticism, harassment, bullying and abuse?  What can you do if you’re stuck for some a finite time in these homes?

Three images-reminders to begin with:

  1. Be invulnerable.  Survive no matter what.  Ignore them as much as possible.  Their opinions don’t count.  Don’t debate or argue.  Fly low and make secret plans in the fastness of your heart.  Then get free.
  2. Be unbroken.  Plan for your leaving; in the middle of the night if you have to.  Learn a skill so you can make a living.  Or get away to college.  Become financially and physically independent.  No matter how long.  No matter how far.
  3. Let nothing crush you.  Be like your ancestors, who survived far worse than you probably have.  They survived flood and drought, famine and plague, fire and tornado, war, pillage, rape and slavery.  You have that DNA in you.  They survived and you can too.  Learn the lives of heroes who had it worse than you and who will inspire strength and fighting spirit in you.

It really is that simple and straightforward.  If may be extremely difficult.  But your future is calling to you.  Your next seventy years are calling to you.

It’s the same with toxic spouses – husbands and wives.  Those toxic people took away the first years of your life.  Don’t let them take away the rest.

Every morning, before you get out of bed send your spirit roaring, like Aslan’s call over Narnia; roaring over your body and mind and soul.  Don’t despair.  Live.  Rise with the courage, strength and will to live.

Take your power and plan.  Be free to fulfill your life.

Be magnificent.  Be the hero of your life.
