There is a thread on JFO that has me reeling. I don't want to break any rules so I won't be specific, but it is someone who is being incredibly abused in her relationship and yet she is still trying to figure out how to make the relationship work.
I am a WW and she is a BS. Yet, I can relate to her pain and dysfunctional thinking. And most of all, I can relate to her inability to break free from the unhealthy relationship she is in. I read her story and it is, for me, like yesterday – 4 decades ago.
Really, what is the difference? Isn't pain and unhealthy thoughts and destructive patterns universal? Why is the BS's pain superior to the WS' pain?
This woman is fucked up and so was I - for decades. Does that make one of us better than the other?
WS or BS ? Why do we need labels? Isn't the issue getting healthy?
Does putting on a label, predispose an outcome?
Would love some feedback.
