“I don’t need you!”
How many times have you actually said those words to someone? I know I have said them more than once; actually shouted would be a better description. Yet nothing changed. The person I shouted at behaved the same and the situation dragged on.
This post offers some really good advice on how to move past this feeling. My only comment is that I am sorry i didn’t have such words of wisdom when I needed them most 10 years ago.
