Forgiveness is the key. Why do so many people not know this, and spiritual leaders not teach it?
Best way to forgive someone is to leave them. Love them from afar. Distance with love. Anything short of that is enabling the obnoxious, hurtful, dysfunctional behavior. You don't have to take it. You don't have to endure it. There is no need or benefit to sacrifice. God wants to love them, yes, but it doesn't mean you have to put up with their crap!
