Stand firm, my man! Dump toxic people ASAP. I offer the same advice to women involved in abusive relationships. Our choices are a two-way street. As someone previously married to a BDP for 25 years, I’ve earned my right to call out toxic people’s sh*t, and I will! I have since found an incredible, mentally healthy, beautiful woman who brings out the very best in me. I married her post-haste with no regrets, and I can’t imagine being happier with anyone else.
