I watched like 5 minutes but had to pause at the punching the wall being a positive or a lesser evil. That's scary af. I wouldn't care that it was stress relief not directed at me.

I remember getting into a debate here about how Adam Driver's character punching the wall wasn't really a big deal. Cut to me months later into a relationship where my former best friend & roomate punched (and broke) the window during a discussion we had.

It's a big fucking deal and it kills me to know I had to live through it to understand how big of a deal it is.

Fighting in general is so damn exhausting, I’m lucky to have no fights with my S/O and when we do I get over them super fast...but does he old grudges?
✨That’s something his therapist knows✨

This remains the most traumatic fight I've seen on film, tbh

Yeah I hate when Netflix or Hulu or whoever recommends it to me. Like bitch I already suffered once, I ain't doing it again.

this is just breaking my heart to watch so i had to stop. my bf ended things with me last month and i'm still hurting everyday from it. while he's going to do therapy, i wish we could just work through this together. he doesn't even know why he ended things or if he made a mistake, hence the therapy.

thanks. it's so hard because i don't know what to do besides be patient as he starts therapy and he tells me what he's uncovering from there.

it's been a year I broke up and I don't think I'm over us. Yesterday I had this gut feeling/sixth sense whatever you want to call that I was replaced. Maybe it was nothing or maybe it truly happened. It's hard bc a while ago he tried to start a conversation and I was super receptive but now that I tried he left me on read so yeah. I know what you going through <3

Oh god, that first comment is me. Or was, rather, since I ended things last summer. Still trying to figure things out after 10 years together.
