I have suddenly become very assertive.
You would not think this would be the effect of what just happened to me, but I have dispatched two exs that I had maintained friendships with in the last two weeks.
Today, the invader came, despite the blog post, and has been summarily executed. He cannot open his mouth without making you feel bad. He apparently did not understand until I actually said “Do not come back.”
This is most interesting. Suddenly I am slashing away at dead wood like there is no tomorrow.
I wonder what other effects it has had?
I was very assertive many years ago, as long as I was nowhere near the family, but I was told to give up everything to take care of my parents, and I did. Thereafter it was one long, long period of being a punchbag.
Wolfe started the clearance, of course, because about six of the exs came back a couple of times over the last twenty or so years. This intolerance to negative friendships is new, however.
I might take myself out to celebrate this strange new person I’m suddenly becoming.
Thank you to whomever stopped him searching the site over and over again, that was tiresome.
