I'm Melina. I was born and raised in a desert called New Mexico.
Welcome to the back of my mind. This is a diary of sorts
Anonymous asked: how do i communicate to my s/o that their "silly jokes" (such as "haha yeah it's all your fault" "ok bye see you never") and reduction in verbal affirmations of love and affection are hurting my heart without making them feel bad?
a) I’m both touched that and confused as to why you’re coming to me for this advice, since I feel like I fuck up a lot of shit and am in no way any sort of expert at resolving adult conflicts or initiating confrontation.
b) disclaimer: I have no experience in dealing with this kind of situation.
c) If I were you, I would probably attempt to be as straight-forward as possible and say, “Hey, [insert pet name here], I know you’re joking when you say things like ____ and _____, but it is making me feel sad and uncomfortable and I would appreciate it if you would stop.”
