if you tell someone ‘no’ and they respond with “FINE……….” or “guess ill be all alone….” or “its okay im used to having my hopes crushed…….” or any of that guilt-inducing passive aggressive fuckery, cut them straight out of your life because you never deserve to feel bad for setting boundaries or speaking your mind.
Preferably foster the people band members.
I think it’s sometimes thoughtless to say we shouldn’t tw things on Tumblr or be actively nice to people we don’t know because “that’s not how the real world works”. Like, exactly! People have to deal with enough bullshit in the “real world” and they want a few hours to be away from that and surround themselves with people who send out good energy and relate to them. Don’t shit on their joy by being mean.
