My ex can’t accept my identity, a rant


Recommended Posts

CW// swearing, invalidation, rant

I broke up with my boyfriend because I’m frayromantic (flux). He proceeded to say I just had commitment issues, my identity wasn’t valid, and he needed better taste in people. Then he called me a bitch, said it was ok because I call myself a bitchboy, and justified all of it because he was mad. Then, he completely switched his attitude and became nice again… WTF


sorry if that makes no sense but yea

Aw that's mean even if he disagreed that's no way to treat someone calling them names

Maybe part is projecting and seeing that as something completely unthinkable in his mind. I think the whole commitment issues thing is over used anyway sometimes it makes sense as a concept other times I think it is used to shame someone for their choices/wanting to make changes etc. just because it conflicts with theirs. 

I can't say ofc because I don't know them at all but I hope the rant helped you a bit.

oof, that reallydoesn't sound great.

One thing I found very invalidating during my one (miserable failure of a ) romance was after it ended my ex very suddenly became kinder, more talkative. Looking back I think it was a sign that they didn't think my desire to call the relationship off was valid. They believed if they just started being nice again I would have some magic realisation that I was completely wrong, I had lost the greatest thing in my life and would come back begging within a week.

It didn't happen.

Hopefully he is going back to being nice out of genuine care but when I read that I couldn't help but be reminded of my experience.
