Bullies in the Family
Every family has a bully or two or five. Some families breed bullies that are filled with sarcasm, criticism, judging, manipulation, and persuasion. To such families, they manifest their love through their maladaptive behavior. It’s what they know and it is how they medicate their pain associated with broken relationships. Most bullies know their behavior needs modification, but they don’t know how and they are embarrassed to admit they are not perfect. So they continue to medicate.
