Does anyone have a good way of resolving these short of suicide or running away to Sweden?
I got a feeling you ain't in the air force. Provide example.
stop being coy....what do you want to tell/ask us
Person A is unhappy. Person B is unhappy. Person B would be happy if Person A is happy but the thing that would make Person A happy would make person B more unhappy, but Person B not allowing the thing that would make Person A happy makes Person A even more unhappy.
about sweden, that is, i don't think he's a catch-22 expert.
Just dump her and get on with your life for Christ's sake. Jeez...
Jst dump him and get on with your life for Christ's sake. Jeez...
But if person b would be happy knowing person a is happy, this makes entirely no sense.
Right back @ you.
I was having a blonde moment. Despite not being blonde.
well I know who A and B are but who is which which is who?.....the answer is there somewhere.....Ah yes I have it.
Person A has to learn to be happy without the thing that would make Person B unhappy. Even if Person A has to pretend and hide the tears....perhaps later on the 'thing' might become possible, but probably not at the moment.
So Person A has to put on a brave face to make Person B happy, only in this way, by making Person B happy, might the 'thing' become more possible in the future.
(disclaimer....the 'thing' might materialise, but it is more likely to if Person A makes B happy, by being brave.....however Person A must make a good fist of being happy and attempt (genuinely) for person Bs sake to actually be happy, not just hide unhappyness (although a bit of that might be required at first) Person A must attempt to forget about the 'thing'....or at least put it to the back of their minds for now and concentrate on building up happyness....both for person B....and themselves (albeit maybe gradually)
circles and view it as one of life cruel ironies.....it isnt, it is a consequence.
in large letters on my wall
and stare at it whilst on the phone.
you are absolutely right. :D
unless persons a and b were the other way round...
but Person B is jazz-da-spazz
you should just be glad you didn't write it.
everything is fixed now anyway
is to kill yourself, surely?
but i only had 2 paracetamol left and couldn't be bothered to go to the shop.
there is some sort of law of diminishing returns.
