Being secure in the fact that you are a beautiful spirit sometimes irritates those who don't know that. It reminds them of the fact that they are not sure of who and what they are and that the only way they can be is to envy those who do. They set up interactions to challenge you at every turn to validate their jealousy. They are looking outside for what can only be found within. Your best bet is to allow them to learn their own lessons and trip themselves up; just remember to be there to help them back uponly if they were NOT abusive.
If they were abusive, absence of your presence is necessary for them to grow and expand. Cutting off abusive people is exactly what they need to grow up and learn how to deal with life. Nothing you can say or do will sink in until they have to be on their own and deal with their aberrances. If you continue to forgive them and interact with them it only teaches them that you are forgiving and that they can get away with the same behavior again and again.
Bravely stand against those who are not out for your best interests. It sends a clear message to them AND to you that you will not
You are the one who determines what you allow in your life. Choose to allow only that which allows you to grow and expand and not wither and die. Acceptance of things as they are and not attaching emotional beliefs to them defines their effect on you. Don’t allow experiences to affect you emotionally too much. If you do, you will vibrate those feelings out into the omniverse and co-create more of the same.
When you accept your Divine perfection within and act from it, you send a clear message of what you deem as acceptable to you for how others should treat you. If they choose not to treat you in the way you deem is acceptable, let them know. If they respond with more abuse, then move yourself into a space where you feel your inner beauty and others accept you as being just that. ~Dean A. Banks, D.D. (Spirituality Guidance Channel)
