The one "type" i'll never date again
It comes in different forms, but I recently learned about "stonewalling" and it was crippling. Dismissing concerns, refusing to listen when your partner needs it, and generally getting defensive anytime a disagreement happens. Over time, it makes you feel angry, confused, and distrustful. So yeah, you definitely end up feeling like you're a problem, get irritable, worrisome, and are eventually pushed away for being like that.
It's sort of like gaslighting somebody, but just straight up denying their emotional need to feel heard and cared for.
I respect that it comes from a place wanting to avoid the fear and anxiety of confrontation, but how do you ever solve anything if you just shut people out and tell them they're too much?
