I realized in my last relationship the importance of SAYING NO.
Do NOT go to parties where all of his EX-GFs will be.
Do NOT go to ‘NOISE ART” shows where you’ll be forced to watch amateur videos of women being degraded in the name of “art.”
Do NOT go to see his mom’s new house, (even after you’ve broken up) because she’d like to see you.
WHY NOT you ask???
Because it won’t be appreciated ANYWAY.
Because your discomfort in any of these situations will be what’s remembered, not the effort you made by enduring them.
