First off if you can get away from toxic , abusive person, by all means do so. You have a right to protect yourself. And I can never understand how people watch serials that glorify domestic violence, I.e Meri Durga on Star Plus. That being said, why is it difficult for people to get away from toxic people. Why does God allow circumstances that keep toxic people in your life. For instance, that mother who was emotionally and physically abusive. That mother who never let you stand up to bullies. That mother who took the side of your abusive ex husband. That mother who contributed to your miscarriage. That mother who wrongly called police on your Dad because you called police on your physically abisive ex. (luckily USA police have some sense) That mother who continually tries sideline you Maybe God purposely kept that person there so you can: -Work out your Karmas. Perhaps you were bad mother in previous life. -Learn to love and accept people the way God himself does -Show the she evil people what humanity is What do you think? We see all these serials where person is nice to mean in-laws, and the in-laws turn nice. Please give your opinions.
