So I felt I needed to share this somewhere. I have always been terrified to just block people on my phone and elsewhere and tell them to take a hike. Finally, after being bombarded by gifts and "invitations" (more like "I need you to go to this family outing against your will" and "take my gift so I know that you didn't reject me and to pressure you into maintaining a relationship with me") I just said fuck it. I just blocked my dad and my sister on my phone. Told them I wasn't doing the family stuff and stop sending me gifts. I don't feel too bad at the moment either. What is this incredible power I possess to finally say "no"?????!! Superhuman ability I reckon. I feel good for the first time in a long time. Yayyyyyyyyy! Boundaries!
