I was recently told “make him feel special“. To be really honest, that comment made me angry. As I’ve stated before, anger is usually hurt not wanting to appear vulnerable.
why do you ask, was I angry/hurt by that? Well, you see I’ve spent a lifetime being the one that is “wrong“. I’ve always been the one that had to apologize first, accept full responsibility no matter the fault and bury my own feelings and needs for the benefit of others.
It’s not that what I was told was wrong in this instance, but it was triggering. Fortunately, I got over it quickly
