"You get to have your own narrative"∞
“But their narratives are not yours. And just like they get to have their own, YOU get to have YOUR own. And your narrative is that they are unreasonable, selfish, and frankly being jerks about this whole thing.
Those two narratives are not mutually exclusive. They exist simultaneously. Nothing needs to be done about them; they simply are.” – Laura at captainawkward
