I get it ... I've been there.

I understand your frustration. It can be very disheartening to see toxic behavior in a place where you expect to find love, support, and healing. As someone who has also served in the church, I can relate to your experience.

It’s true that our fallen natures can lead us to act in harmful ways, even when we’re trying to do good. When we’re wounded, we can lash out at others or become self-serving. And when we’re caught up in a narcissistic system, we can lose sight of our values and start to treat others as objects instead of people.

This is why it’s so important to be aware of our own limitations and to seek help when we need it. We can’t heal ourselves, but we can get support from others who can help us to grow and become more loving and compassionate.

If you’re struggling with toxic behavior in the church, I encourage you to reach out for help. Contact me, and/or join one of our online chats or workshops.
