Today’s Fun Friday Challenge is to tell CN how that no contact’s going.
In yesterday’s post, Dr. Chumphead commented:
You know, since I have gone completely no contact, I am much better. Even when I did it in the beginning, I was better. But I didn’t set strong enough boundaries that he couldn’t contact me at all. He would still email me at least twice a week about rubbish we didn’t need to and every time I spoke to him I would get more upset and feel like I’d gone back to square one.
Alas, because we have no magic bullshit bracelets, there’s only boundaries. It’s hard to get the hang of it at first, but as I’ve written here many times before, no contact is a discipline. It gets easier with practice.
Usually the “rubbish” is an invitation to stick your head in the mindfuck blender again. And you can say no. Actually, you should say nothing at all.
(Unless you have children, in which case — parenting software.)
So, how’s it going out there? Tell CN about the joys and struggles of No Contact.
