It might be difficult to say NO to your loved ones, thinking of their emotions being hurt. But at times it is required and you should. However hard it be. Saying yes and slogging inside, while your loved one has no clue of it hurts even more.
Is it alright to not face than suffer? You are not facing that what is inevitable. So yes. When you know the ending, maybe make it a win-win situation.
I have suffered, for a very long time. It is not their mistake. I present myself as the vulnerable being. Who does not want authority? Someone who would listen to you. While you can not change them, you have the sovereignty to change yourself. Infact, my counsellor says, I am ruining their life by not showing them the real me who doesn’t abide by their rules and neither letting them go.
