It’s OK to love someone who is hurtful and toxic, while keeping them at an arm’s length. This includes family and friends, as well as former business and romantic partners.

Being a good person does not include standing by, silently, while being endangered, shamed, embarrassed, controlled, or abused. Charles Tadros, M.D. September 3, 2022 Saint Louis, Missouri
