I don’t get some people. I get wanting to be nice and wanting to live in harmony etc.
So I was watching one of the couples reality shows.
I want to just frame the following conversation for women who need to...figure these things out...
Therapist: Putting up with being yelled at and disrespected is not okay.
Woman: Then what do I do?
Therapist: Confront him and walk out or away from the situation do not just sit there and take it.
Woman: So what if he says “Yeah go ahead leave”?
(I am thinking SO WHAT??? Your option is to continue to be a doormat and you are worried that he might leave you??? I would be throwing my shoes…wait no HIS shoes at him on his way out the door. Please leave me if you do not know how to act because therapists get paid and I am NOT your mother)
Therapist: Maybe then that is okay because it means the relationship is not that important to him
Woman: Hmm okay…
Please people contemplate the worst case scenario rather than just live stuck in the fear of what could happen. "Feel the fear and move forward anyway!"
Woman: I don’t want to upset him
Therapist: He needs to be upset
Later the man is on camera.
"I hope the Therapist does not turn my girl into someone... too bossy who holds me accountable for being a jerk... I cannot be with women like that" he says.
