The greatest survival skill I ever learned was how to nope the fuck out of any relationship built on weaponized guilt.
Like this whole dynamic where you have to figure out what you did wrong and then perform some kind of grovelling atonement (which is always some kind of self-abasement and never anything actually tangible) which is then accepted or not by a third party?
Yeah miss me the hell with that shit, hey.
(Big shout-out to a couple of my high school friends who were the first people who ever tried to enact this dynamic with me, and who even at that age made me think "oh hells no.")
@alis best not to build a relationship on guilt. Sounds toxic.
