is a trait of mine as of lately. I dont think ill be asking anything in particular here. But I'd love to hear some sort of advice. Frustration is a place to vent so..
I didnt think my 20s would begin so dysfunctional. I've been betrayed multiple times and put too much effort into those that didn't return it, and imean sh!t it happens to everyone. But its left funny side effects contrasting w who I've been most of my life (can that really say a whole lot if I'm only 21 though lol).
I can't bring myself to forgive anymore. I used to do it, not like giving handouts to people despite them visibly sh!tty human beings (i really fcking hate people like that and they have nobody but themselves to blame) but rationally and I was able to move on. I cant move on at all now lol. I can think of specific situations that occurred to make me gravitate towards this way of thinking I rather not go into detail about, but it's not like I changed overnight is what I'm saying. I really do hate explaining it this way, the whole "the world made me this way" sh!t lol.
When it boils down to friendships and relationships, I feel if somebody fcks up they will just do it again. I believed thinking this way was only reasonably so until I thought about why I've been so upset and vulnerable lately. I say vulnerable bc i think people are just out with an ulterior motive or have no problem hurting me.
People characterize forgiveness as some kind of strength, but I lately i feel like it diminishes the concepts of repercussion and humility and nobody will learn as a result (it has made me literally hate people who forgive or cant see redflags early on). I worry if giving someone my forgiveness means I'm an idiot or I'm missing a detail of the situation, so I revisit it, overanalyze it and get upset all over again. I feel like it makes people think I'm easy to walk over or use, or I'm some kind of idiot who wont remember later on and they'll be able to get away w it again, so I feel like I have to be prepared.
I cant really see that person the same way anymore and i feel like pushing others away due to it, but i like making new connections. If that person fcks me over they need to work as hard as they can to demonstrate theyre sorry -- and i mean above and beyond kind of bs, I say bs bc it's unrealistic. Which makes me feel like i might be setting up too high of expectations for people only to lead to my own downfall somewhere along the way.
I cant really forget even small little things now,it makes me worry that said person is just bound to do worse later on and maybe i should dip. Though I really dont want to bc i like being around ppl. It makes me over-analyze them as a whole person also.
I cant really say "I forgive you" or "it's okay" bc it really isn't. I'd just be lying if I said those. I think people get off too easily now and it makes me expect the worst, but also expect them to be better. I got told it's great I'm this way once the whole "trust nobody" thing. But I feel it has more cons than pros in this world, especially if you LIKE meeting people and like making friends.
I just can't bring myself to forgive. I call it a big privilege now, I do nothing but watch what people do instead of what they say. I get everyone likes to bullsh!t how actions speak more than words but I don't think anyone gets it until it's put into motion for them like this. It's hard to salvage any friendship or relationship after some sh!t, maybe it's easy for them but I have a bunch of pent up bs that makes me want to cut off everyone. w.e. Again advice is appreciated.
