Those of us who have dealt with toxic people, realise Christmas is their time for them to make all their dreams come true and totally wreak havoc. Sometimes I used to find the best approach was just to surrender to it.
One of my favourite protests was the time I had decided,
” If you want us to behave like your family, I’ll behave like your family.”
I had really get into the spirit of things. In my case it had involved buying myself a carton of beer(not a fan), a packet of cigarettes (I hate smoking) and putting continuous loud sport on the tv. He never pulled the stunt which had led to my protest again.
Sometimes it can be very entertaining to give them what they claim to want(in ways that will inflict no permanent damage on yourself or others.)
