Yes well, I read so much and reflected on my interactions with my narcissistic family system. I think the years that I spent in reflection really helped me institute some checks and balances in my life now to be aware of my own interactions with my son. I think the crucial tool to use to remove yourself from toxicity and detox as an empath is to be “self-aware”. When you get to a point of being able to scrutinize your own actions and know where they come from, then you are already out of the influence of the narcisstic family system. This is when an empath can begin again. The actions of that empath from that point on can reflect true values of this person rather than the values imposed on this empath by the family system. The way out is to get out and to reflect.
Thanks for your response and for reading this article.
