"We teach people how to treat us" but does anyone out there have a slow learner on their hands?
You can be the absolute "best teacher" and suggest boundaries be implemented, for example but if the "learner" has a processing or learning issue, then how do we "teach them how to treat us?"
Case in point: Adult SD has been extremely manipulative, verbally abusive, and the list goes on. I tell DH he needs to create boundaries. In our case SD is a classic narcissist, and pretty much the only way to remedy the drama with one of these is to go "no contact" period.
He is not buying it, and still chases after her.
Anyone else there?
