  1. The practice disappointing people is an excellent tip, but sooo hard to do the first couple of times…. Great post!

    Story of my life. I have always been a people pleaser, especially with my wife and kids. So much so that they have constantly walked all over my feelings and taken advantage of my love.
    Now, 4 years past my wife’s 2-year emotional affair disclosure, I could give a shit what she thinks of me since she is the one who made the choice (and continues to) not reconnect or love/desire me.
    Currently doing an in-house separation that has included ZERO physical touch in any way, shape or form since January and I am starting to harden my heart to the point I just don’t care anymore if she makes me happy or I make her happy. Just…don’t…care!

    I’m not inclined to disappoint people, but I put my big girl pants on and do it anyway. Hard talks are apart of life. I’m a destructive relationship, hard talks get you nowhere except further hurt. That’s the difference between a healthy relationship and an unhealthy one.
