Today I threw my oldest friend out of my house.
You are all showing me that I am important. Valued. Loved.
Yesterday I specifically told The Dude “you do x and it will piss me off and hurt me. Meanwhile I need you to do z.”
This morning I learned that he did NOT do z. And he did do x.
Both x and z are insignificant things themselves, they just represent multiple alphabets worth of things that have happened.
Without thinking, I pointed toward the door. “Get out of my house”
I walked him to the door and opened it. “I love you, and when you figure out how to treat me like I am important, let me know.”
And I closed the door.
I love you and love that you are seeing your value, your worth. Those little things all add up to a bigger picture when someone isn’t considering your needs or what it takes to make you feel loved.
GOOD JOB. I am so proud of you!!!
You know what’s awesome? I think every. single. person. has had a moment when they’ve just wanted to tell someone to GTFO and YOU? Actually did it.
Proud of you, babe.

Proud of you, dude.
Woohoo! That’s a hard thing to do, so a big old congratulations to you for the GTFO moment:)
totally agree with vdog!!!! YOU did it!!!
Your life, your voice.
I would imagine that when you get to that point, you’re done. I am proud of you for being strong. Hugs.
holy shit I am THRILLED at this, seriously!!!
Wow, way to go, girl!
YES!!!!! This is Dawn taking back her life. And if I may quote Chef Auguste Gusteau from _Ratatouille_: “If you focus on what you’ve left behind, you will never be able to see what lies ahead.” Smart cartoon chef, that one. I’m so proud of you and your strength.
You are important. You are loved. YOU deserve to be happy! Proud of YOU!!! XOXO
Rock it! Good Job, indeed. *applause*

This kinda got my attention…
I too have stayed in a relationship way, *WAY* past it’s sell-by date. And while I think it was an amazingly strong and powerful thing you did, symbolic of taking your life back….I also recognize that as bad as a relationship is, it’s still a relationship…
Surgery to remove a tumor is still cutting someone open and tearing something out of them.
The key is that *NOW* you can start truly healing.
Good for you girl.
