if you tell someone ‘no’ and they respond with “FINE……….” or “guess ill be all alone….” or “its okay im used to having my hopes crushed…….” or any of that guilt-inducing passive aggressive fuckery, cut them straight out of your life because you never deserve to feel bad for setting boundaries or speaking your mind.
I should move to a different country. Why don’t I? I love New York so much though and I can’t imagine leaving. And my mom. Especially now, I could never leave her. Not that it would be permanent, necessarily. Damn I want to do it.
