You win Xoup

SInce it is clear to me that anything I post on this forum. In any subforum. On any subject. Is going to get you yapping along, throwing out whatever insults come to your tiny little brain, this place just isn't enjoyable. So you win. Congratulations. Maybe I will check back in a month or three.

Just ignore him.

I mean really ignore, not "ignore".

I'd rather read your stuff than his.

I didn't "win" anything.

But I do find it amusing that you (mistakenly) imagined that all my replies to you were insults.

Seriously?? :shock:

I did not know that. Apparently my contributions here are far less useful than I had imagined.

In any case, I'm not going to be made the bad guy for running Nyarl off the forum, so I will offer to leave instead.

Fair enough?

Ignoring people is so easy even without putting them on ignore. I find this whole ongoing situation incredibly confusing.

That's my point.

Not that I'm ignoring anyone right now, but it happens off and on according to my shifting mood.

https://www.theneurotypical.com/emotion ... hment.html
Emotionally detaching from an abusive relationship can be extremely difficult. Many men and women believe they still love their abusive husbands, wives and exes. Therefore, developing indifference and detaching from their abusers—even when they’re a consistent source of pain—seems antithetical.

Nevertheless, learning to detach is vital if you ever hope to regain your health, happiness, sanity and sense of Self. This also applies to people who have divorced or broken up with their abusive spouse or partner but have to maintain some degree of contact because of shared children, working for the same company or attending the same school.

Emotionally detaching requires that you change many of your attitudes, beliefs and behaviors. Detaching is not about enabling your abuser; it’s about disarming your abuser by eradicating her or his ability to hurt you. It’s not about changing your behavior so that you don’t trigger your spouse; in fact if you successfully detach it will probably provoke him or her to become even nastier and controlling for a while.

When your spouse takes an ugly turn into consistent abuse and other controlling behaviors, attaching your self-worth to how they treat you and placing all your effort into them and the relationship guarantees exploitation and self-destruction. For your psychological survival in this kind of relationship, you need to develop and feel indifference and emotional detachment.
Believe it or not, people can choose how they respond to abusive behavior. Takes practice. Requires honest self-assessment and willingness to change one's own behavior and develop alternatives to reactive responses. It can be done.

Choose wisely. Or not.

Love is the most important part of what it means to be LGBT, and Out brings readers the latest heartwarming and heartbreaking stories on gay love. Find out how gay love can influence law in Supreme Court decisions that have shaped the lives of gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender like Windsor v. United States. Read in Out’s Love Issue of how LGBT couples like Michael Urie and Ryan Spahn, Jd Samsen and Ariel Sims, Matt Doyle and Ryan Steele, Nyarlathotep and Xouper, and more first met and fell in love.
People should recognize when they have found their better half and not dwell on petty differences. It takes discipline but it can be done

You contributions are garbage.

But in solidarity with both of you, I'm leaving too!*

If we have won Xoup, where do we go to collect this valuable prize?

Can you tell us the dollar value so we can figure out how it's going to affect our tax brackets?

Is there an option for a cash equivalent?

Are we required to sign up for a time share in a Florida condo?
