Comment on How Do I Stop My Boyfriend From Breaking Up With Me? by ProudofMyself.
I’m the type that usually doesn’t say anything and just suffer someone’s actions/behaviour in silence. I read your post a couple of days ago and made a decision to start expressing my feelings directly and openly. So yesterday when my bf was being really “hard” on me each time he responded harshly or arrogantly to a question that I asked, I told him that he was being harsh and unpleasant to me. It was really amazing to see the effect that expressing my feelings had: he calmed down and apologized. I was particularly VERY proud of myself that I was attentive to my feelings. It’s a small step, but one that made me feel more valid and empowered. Thank you for being the teacher you are!
