Saying “yes”, or rather not saying “no” out of guilt, and because you’ don’t want the other one to feel bad (bad for being rejected, bad for not having their desires fulfilled), that’s one very important topic you highlighted with talent in this article. Putting up with this, it’s like telling ourselves “My feelings are less important than his. I am less important than he is”. This is highly damageable to one’s mind and self-esteem. I totally understand what you say and agree with you. Thank you for writing about this intimate topic is such an open manner.
