We wish you could visualize what’s going on inside our brains—you might be surprised!
Here are six illustrations of what it’s like to be in our heads.
If you're someone who identifies as an introvert, the burden of responsibility for a breakup can feel insurmountable."Introverts don't tend to volunteer their thoughts, feelings, or opinions, especially if it will make someone mad," says Samantha Burns, LMHC, a relationship counselor and dating coach.
They may also be more sensitive to negative evaluations from other people, she says.
To remember which word is which, try this: When something's personal, it's all about you.
A personal decision is one you make on your own and it’s probably about something that concerns you, too.
Let’s keep our discussions reflective, productive, and welcoming.
Remember, we hate small talk so we don’t ask just for the sake of saying something.
We probably won’t answer the phone when you call unless we’re expecting it.
It doesn’t mean we don’t want to talk to you; we’re just not mentally prepared for a conversation and want to give you the attention you deserve when we do talk to you.
Pretty much no human being wants to have a discussion with their partner that will end in a breakup.
It's the worst, and you feel like the worst, so finding the courage to do it is half the battle.
