It is not okay to tell me you will do X and then fail to it, then make me out to be a complainer for reminding you that you were supposed to do X. (This happened with the apartment manager…twice)
It is not okay to say you accept my decision and then immediately proceed to persuade me to do what I said I didn’t want to do. (Happened recently with a friend)
It is not okay to make plans with me to help you with something and then not be there when I go to pick you up. (happened with a different friend).
It is not okay to accuse me of yelling at you and then hang up on me (twice) because you don’t want to pay your overdue rent. (someone I had to deal with at work.)
It is not okay to make fun of me and disrespect me and then complain that I am mean all the time. (My child does this).
It is not okay to drag your feet on a task and then freak out in my space, causing me stress and anxiety, because it has progressed to emergency stage. (My mother does this).
It is not okay to manipulate circumstances to my detriment. (Hyde does this and so much more).
It is not okay for me to lose my temper…or is it? It doesn’t seem right that I am so down on myself for losing my temper for a moment after experiencing any one of these things. Yet all of these things occured in less than one week, and here I am feeling guilty for expressing my anger. I know this is disordered thinking…How do I stop?
