• I’m no longer going to be the ‘go to’ person whom you need to squash under your feet or drag through the dirt in order for you to feel good about who you are and what you have the power to do because of your status in life.
  • I’m no longer going to be the reason for your lifelong bad habits, your long-suffering soul, the excuse for your bad behavior, the scapegoat for all that goes wrong in your life.
  • I’m no longer going to go through my life thinking as you think–that I exist for your pleasure, or that it’s my responsibility to control your mood by allowing you to control mine.
  • I am no longer going to allow you to punish me for a list of never-ending perceived offenses or because I criticize you. If I criticize you it’s because you are interfering with my own power to be and my own well-being.
  • I am no longer going to be the one who walks before you in search of land mines that will blow up your plans, or walks behind you to clean up the mess you make with your irresponsible actions and reactions.
  • We’re going to have an equal relationship based on respect. I am not yours to manipulate and deceive, nor to satisfy your perverse, addictive, selfish urges. When you disrespect me you disrespect yourself, then you blame me for your self-loathing, that you express by hating me and everyone around you.
  • When you do something wrong, don’t come to me to lift you up unless you’re motivated to make right what you did wrong and unless you want to devise a plan to prevent it from happening again.
  • Stop dumping all your troubles on me, expecting me to solve them without any input or effort from you. I’m not your personal garbage disposal.
  • Stop with the ‘all or nothing’ threats, and the self-pity scenarios that you play over and over again in your head each time you don’t want to do what you need to be doing.
  • Stop blaming everybody and everything for how you feel. Where do you come in? What is your contribution to how you feel?
  • Stop analyzing everybody in your family and in your life. Analyze yourself. The next time you grade somebody for their performance, be your own teacher and grade yourself.
  • Don’t focus on yourself to the exclusion of everybody and everything else.
  • Be accurate in your thoughts, then accurate in your communications.
  • Every time you mope, you block my ability to help you. Moping means you’re shutting down and nothing nor nobody can enter. Stop this childishness. Do you really think my only purpose as your partner is to help you when you don’t want to be helped? Pick yourself up.
  • Suffering does not become you.
  • Fifty-fifty is the way it’s going to be from now on. I’m not going to do all the work in this relationship anymore.
  • I’m not interested in why you do all the cruel things you do, and your cruelty is staggering. Recognize yourself as flawed then adopt, through a ceremony if it will make you feel better, the Five Principles to a Better Life.
  • I’m not going to be the ‘go to’ person you always relied on to cheer you up. The ‘cheering you up’ thing never ends. In case you don’t know it, you’re high maintenance. That’s not something to be proud of.
  • Live life by respecting life.
  • Don’t kiss a pig to prove it’s healthy enough to slaughter for your dinner plate.
  • How dare you!
  • I’m connected to their God just as I’m connected to you.
  • The more you support enslavement, torture and slaughter the worse you’ll feel.
  • It’s strange how you call on me for every little thing in your life, then deny my existence as if you’re embarrassed by my presence.
  • How dare you!
  • How dare you use me like that. The next time you’re in a jam, why don’t you call that person you ridiculed me to, maybe they’ll help you out of the perpetual mess you keep making of your life.
  • Why don’t you have a big laugh over that one?
  • I’m sick of being your nurse, teacher and best friend, while you laugh at the mention of me.
  • You have some work to do.
  • Have a nice day!
  • GOD
