try not to take them for granted.
I’ve seen so many relationships (romantic, platonic, family, etc) get ruined because people just wouldn’t communicate their issues with one another.
Passive-aggressive games like “I’m gonna act distant so you can know that I’m upset, but when you try to talk to me about it, I’ll pretend everything’s cool” is a grade-A way to exacerbate a conflict.
Grow up, open your mouth, and respectfully communicate shit before it gets worse. We’re all adults here.2 notes
What if people were just as excited about bettering their mental faculties as they are about receiving validation for their physical appeal? That’d be nice.
I haven’t had a good debate in a long while. I need a mental adversary.
And all I have to say to that is:
What’s with this recent “wait 10+ years to make a sequel” trend, Hollywood??
Not returning calls/texts is one of the worst things you can do. It’s incredibly selfish because you’re basically doing something that makes YOU feel a bit better (by being non-confrontational, thereby not being the “bad guy”) while making someone else feel a LOT worse by keeping them on pins and needles.
Some people may try to rationalize by saying that they’re letting the other person down easy or something along those lines. Nope. It’s just you being a selfish coward.
If you’re not interested, just say so. If the other party keeps contacting you, then the blame game shifts to them. But not before."
