Whenever my gf says anything boring or self-focused I resent her for it because she once dismissed me while I was opening up to her. Help?
At the time, I challenged her on it and she apologised for it, agreeing that it was rude. But now whenever she says something that’s just plain boring or too self-focused (the latter of which she agrees she has a habit of doing), I find myself refusing to validate it as conversation. I think to myself if she’s willing to cut me off on something that’s so personal to me, I’ll be damned if I’m going to lift this conversation up. But it’s also the lack of showing interest in my friends and family when talking to them that grinds me and I feel like not granting interest in her either. What to do?
