It’s very challenging and a big emotional journey

I can’t recall the book off the top of my head but there is a family dynamic called “change/ change back”; meaning when someone when in a toxic environment makes changes to move outside the toxic environment, the other family members most often will not like the change(s) because, well, it’s change, so they try to bring said changing family member “back into the fold” hence the “change” ing person and “change-back” family members.
It’s very challenging and a big emotional journey to break away from this sort of relationship (been there, done that) so I commend anyone who is in the process or has also done the same.
