Selflessness Is Sometimes Selfish – Enabling Toxicity.
Updated: Nov 9, 2022
Sometimes what appears to be selfless becomes selfish. Hear me out.
Consider a co-dependent relationship between two people. You will notice there is that person who is highly egotistical and you might observe the other as self-sacrificing.
Consider for just a moment how that self-sacrificing person is showing up. They might look like the victim; and they probably have been – yet the saying “It takes two to tango” holds weight here. Or perhaps we might be observing that person who is highly egotistical; and they play the victim and wear a mask to create the illusion that they are the selfless one.
Some of us who are empathic and compassionate in nature, fall into toxic and co-dependent relationships without realising it.
