Best Answer

People get used to us being a certain way. When we break through and get healthier in our thinking, some are supportive of us and some aren’t. One think that comes to mind is, when a woman who is normally quiet and non confrontational begins to set boundaries and assert herself people around her take the “what’s gotten into her” response.

    • In the words of Billy Joel, I would say to them: “I don’t care anymore, this is MY LIFE” and when I get to the part where I’d say LEAVE ME ALONE, I would get in the face of whomever thinks I’ve lost it!

    • They think you’ve lost it because they‘re insecure to give up dysfunctional relationships of their own in fear of being left alone, or of changing themselves. I can say this from my own personal experience when I was a lot younger living in a dysfunctional family dynamic.  

      I hope you go with what feels right for You! All the best to you.

    • Because society puts an emphasis on being coupled. I have just started seeing someone after being alone for 2 years and than dating off and on. I enjoyed my time to get to know me and I am a little bit nervous about this becoming serious and being part of a couple again.

      There is nothing wrong with being a lone wolf. I am not a person that needs someone in my life, and you seem to be the same. Just let them know that you like you and enjoy your own company and that if and when the right someone comes along and you are ready to commit you will.
