@Madeline Shoes I'm so sorry you are experiencing this! Just remember that it is NOT your fault and you are not responsible to stay in that house. Try and be there for her as best you can, but you need to watch out for yourself, too.
@phipsi Along those lines, I would recommend this plugin to anyone: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/strict-workflow/cgmnfnmlficgeijcalkgnnkigkefkbhd
@SarahP Hahaha. Rattlesnake! Of all places. Just throwing it out there. (You're right, it would be a terrible idea, but it's making me giggle, so let's roll with it.)
@Judith Slutler I think I wasn't clear - I know I need to see him, because I can't make up my mind. I think that when I see him I will either be like "okay, it feels terrible to be around this person, no more" or I will be convinced that we should give it a shot. And really, I feel like a tough badass lady would just be like "die in a fire, jerk!" and punch him. So I guess I wish I was that, because it would be less vulnerable, and it would be maybe easier.
@adorable-eggplant There are so many stories like that but also so many that work out! Why can't we just have like, a dowsing stick test for it? Mostly I just want to know how to make sure I stick up for myself so that whatever choice I make is because it's what I actually want and not because I have been guilted or manipulated into it.
@leonstj Already so on this. Thanks for sharing!
@bevrockin @iceberg I kinda do? I don't know. I feel like it is the weak thing to do to let him try again? If it ever happened again, I don't think he'd survive it, because I would murder him, and then hate myself for being so stupid. But deep down, I totally want to.
@meetapossum Yes! More about ghosts, always!
I have been waiting for FOT because in three hours I am having ONE drink with the man I was wildly in love with who text-cheated on me and is still trying to convince me we can make it work. It's been a month and I haven't been able to make myself totally walk away yet. Right now I am meditating on this: http://images.wikia.com/uncyclopedia/images/4/47/Angry_Kali.png but you know, there's all that bullshit about how love doesn't die just because you want it to, and that's kind of where I am at. Give me strength! What are your tricks for staying tough? Let's all share!
