Being competitive was part of who I was. Being playful was part of who I was. It wasn’t the whole of it but yeah. I know you don’t want battles. But it pissed me off not feeling good enough because I couldn’t make myself like you.
You can’t force yourself to feel for someone and that’s okay. Don’t be harsh on yourself because it’s out of your control.
I meant make myself less like me and like them. Similar to their personality.
Oh I see.
What makes you feel that way? Maybe there isn’t anything wrong with you. Nobody’s perfect. We all have our flaws. Recognizing any issues is the first step in improving ourselves.
True. I knew it was stuff that she wouldn’t tolerate, and I wasn’t willing to give it up. I respected her view but knew I couldn’t give her what she wanted without giving up this part of myself.
I could see her point, but I didn’t feel valued and probably neither did she.
That’s tough, OP. Your feelings are valid.
I saw her. I talked to her. She seemed very perceptive and she looked like she knew exactly what she was getting into.
Maybe you underestimated her?
Who the hell are you?
