When I was 20 I was much more naive about relationships than I am now. I have much higher self esteem and I also look better now because I made myself blonde, and got better makeup and stopped over tweezing my eyebrows. I looked good then but everyone says I look better now as a blonde. Also I am just much more confident than I used to be.
Anyhow... when I was younger and I met him I viewed him as soooo powerful and let him be boss.
Recently we ran into each other and he saw that I was not putting up with his crap or putting him on a pedestal anymore. But I felt like because he knew I used to be a lot more passive, he was annoyed at my behavior.. whereas if we had just met he would have seen that I don't take crap. Because I already showed him in the past that I would take crap he is not happy I won't anymore. So I ditched him.
Too bad because we had great chemistry..
Ever feel this way, like if you set a bad precedent for yourself in the past the person will always see you as you used to be, even if you changed? Especially if you used to be a doormat and you became more assertive.
