The times I need to say no because my son has a prior commitment, or I say yes as long as he is willing take him to his commitment, the reaction I get is, “So, you are refusing to allow me the right to see my son?” This was a worthy piece to read after I recieved his response to our next court motion next month. Suki, thank you so much! Thank you for showing me that I was the Fallback Girl and that I need to work on my self esteem and self worth. What you gonna do to move on, make sure it never happens again and meet people who appreciate you for who you are? Nope! The latter dude hated my farm, my anti mining/development/land rape/anti drug stance as well as my lifestyle. it lead me to the blame game – in order to ‘offload my own subconscious seeking redemption’. But that will never happen. Thanks . I took her in, took care of the kids when she needed, took them out places she wouldn’t have been able to go. Inwardly, we might be saying no or voicing our resentment or frustration. And I will be MOVING away from all of this nonsense. Another brilliant and timely post Natalie — thank you!! The first thing he did was grab my bum as he went in for a hug. I don’t trust them and they know it. I would try to win him back when he disappeared so by the time we got really involved with each other, I gave him my all. A lesson I've learned time and again is that I don't have to turn everything into a measure of how ’good’ or ’perfect’ I was. While in the end he was hiding is cheating on me and on his new girlfriend with me (I didnt know she existed). Even though he never said “I don’t care”, I knew he didn’t. They'll step up with consistent actions that match their words. I changed my numbers before that even. I eventually learned that even though saying no might make me feel uncomfortable or disappointed in the short term, accepting it allowed me to be open to something else I could say yes to further down the line. Why Do They Keep Having Sex With Me If They’re Not Interested Or Don’t Want The Relationship I Want? I mistook suppressing and repressing my needs, desires, expectations, feelings and opinions for being ’pleasing’. Deep breath! If we tend to lose ourselves, often what isn't good for us is the approach. They also play a game I call, “Wuz Gonna But you…”, “I wuz gonna bring you flowers but you were snippy.” “I was gonna pop the question but you got too pushy.”, My new game is called, “But my sanity came back.”, “I was gonna give you another chance but my sanity came back.”, The assclowns favourite game “wuz gonna but you…”. I think I have an AC on my hands. Letting Go of a Relationship That Doesn’t Exist, Breaking Up With and Getting Over a Married/Attached Man, Fantasy vs Reality: When you struggle to differentiate between what was real and what wasn’t. …At Xmas 2013 he stopped texting and wanting to meet. Saw what the future could look like while tending to my dying dad. I’m summarising all the points and also cottoned on earlier that you need to have proof documented (this future faker EUM AC of mine that I regret taking back)… Building myself up again with these articles to cling to as my strength which justify why I will for once and for all, get out of this bad addiction of a relationship. It could be, though, that in our quest to be what we think is our version of ’good’, ’loving’ or even ’perfect’, we got so caught up in playing this role that we stopped knowing how to be us. Went to run a race outta town and he didn’t want to do animal care but didn’t say so. I will be grateful for any answer or advice. One thing I can take from it is that he appealed to me because we have similar (ethnic) background and seemed to open up this part of me, so now I will make more effort to meet others like this. If someone seems to need to break you down to boost themselves or distorts your reality with their gaslighting, it’s a code red alert that this isn’t a safe person and connection. As a result I’ve lost work, friends, ENCOURAGEMENT and support from people when I needed it the most – only it hasn’t worked entirely – I am still here and I am getting better – they are not going to impose on me and get away with it anymore. Some people can’t just have an opinion; they want to force-feed it to you as well and ‘make’ you agree with it! If they’re quick with an apology, it soon proves to be a hollow one because just cross them again by not submitting to their demands and soon they will come out with stuff that completely contradicts the apology and/or promises. Because a boundary or an envelope is the limit and we are going to go outside the limit for new ideas, original ideas. Elly x, Yes it is when I say No that the **** really hits the fan in my experience – and it is totally of-putting (being honest) from putting a boundary in place ever again and YES I do bear the brunt of guilt when I DEFEND myself – even though in the long term I know, it is better than no defense at all. She has most definitely heard my side multiple times, the story has never changed, and still she questions me about why. The word “boundary” can be a bit misleading. Like they’re really gonna get away with it. Where do they get off, they have nothing to offer us, only heartache and a waste of our time. I have tried a neutral arbitration, and it doesn’t hold. She was lucky, yes. And you will feel so empowered and it’s amazing how giving it time you can see right through all their BS!!! Many of the stories that BR readers share where they often feel powerless, intimidated, blindsided, anxious, or struggling to understand why they feel so compressed by someone who is smiling to their face and telling them that they care or that what they’re doing is for ‘the best’, are about dealing with person who in their quest to meet their needs, expectations, and wishes, will see little wrong with trying to force people to do what they want. Or think of that person who seems to want to make disliking you and letting you know about it, their vocation. I read your post(s) regarding boundaries, asserting them, and how it may make others feel some type of way because they are not used to you having boundaries and asserting them (I call it having your own back) and it was like the light bulb clicked on in my head. Don’t personalise their bullsh*t. It’s not because you’re a ‘soft touch’ – they do this stuff in any situation where they want to get their own way. He would then get made at me and sulk, pout, give me the silent treatment if he didn’t get his way. LOL to calling them parasites, but so true! It used to really upset me and I wanted to help her but I am absolutely shattered mentally and physically…. The limit and then you push the boundary and it makes the limit go farther out, farther out. This type (who is one of the worst types) of AC/imposer is weak and resorts to stealing others’ strength. It leaves me thinking ‘what the flip, who does he think I am?’ I no longer buy that he’s just disorganised, as he says sometimes, he seems perfectly capable with the people he’s not f’ing with. Hi Louise, you’re right and I find joy in many things, I just need to reach that ‘what was I thinking? The limit and then you push the boundary and it makes the limit go farther out, farther out. Sometimes, we agree with something on the outside or comply despite feeling very differently on the inside. It didn’t long to get over him once I stop lying to myself and saw him as the assclown he was. If You're Going To Argue or Tell Someone About Themselves, Don't Do It By Text or Email. Even when he touched me I thought I was gonna vomit. Yep my mistake I did read your last comment as your ex rather than your brother – and my condolences for you with the recent death of your Dad. Thank you Stephanie. Know this – if it doesn’t feel like it is right or that you need to be better somehow – it’s because it isn’t right and there is no confusion in that feeling. Maybe a bit naive, but I truly felt that I touched his heart. His neglect led to the loss of half my flock. *Applause*. You will feel and know their interest. Often the very thing they’re struggling with about someone else points to something they themselves are doing in another form. I kept it short and went in my house. Out of the blue came this text. You all have helped me work thru this and still working. Certain situations can be easier to get out of then others, but like the saying goes, where there’s a will there’s a way…So much of the mistreatment boils down to your self-esteem and boundaries! Now I have a dream new job working on a surgical ward, and inside the theatre, I will be finally doing my foundation degree in october.
