Just an observation:
People that talk about how "so-'n-so thinks the world revolves around them" and then proceed to cut ties, "for the sake of mental health/sanity/family/children/spouse", run a high risk of becoming the very person they felt the need to avoid in the first place. Often without them seeing it happen, and those around them suffering silently. Martyrdom does not look good on anyone.
