@sophia god. as someone who has also dealt with a lot of gaslighting (solidarity friend), this is godawful. 9 times out of 10 that I have tried to explain my reasoning and be a "decent person", it ends up in an argument. Which is what I was trying to avoid. In the end, I don't owe anyone an explanation. If I feel my interactions aren't healthy or conducive to my wellbeing, I dont need to damage that more by trying to explain why. God, this is just the worst take.
@ritualnoise Boundaries are good and it's up to you what boundaries you feel are necessary, why, and how you enact them. It might not be comfortable for others but you have every right to protect your own wellbeing
