Now, this isn’t something you want to share with any narcissists, but it is such a sweet sentiment. Never, ever, EVER. I get all warm inside when I hear it. *sniff*
Hyperbole aside, let’s talk a minute about the word ‘never’. ‘Never’ means ‘I’d rather shave my eyebrows with a rusty chainsaw than ever be in the same room with you again’. It can also mean ‘You’re a deadbeat, and you’ve been evicted permanently from my head’. ‘Never’ does NOT mean, ‘I want to be dramatic and give an ultimatum, but of course I don’t mean it’. It doesn’t mean that at all. The Army is very clear on this, Cadets. Give YOURSELF chances, not narcissists. Be emotionally generous to YOURSELF, not toads.
Here’s a version for the gents. This one is fun.
