Emotional Independence. That should be a Beyonce theme song. Don't cave to drama. Don't cave to bad behavior. Stand up and leave the premises with a calm smile. Go have a coffee and ask yourself, "do I need this?" Once is unavoidable, twice is questionable. Three times you're out...of my life. Trust can't be built on erratic tantrum behavior. And when someone shows you who they are, believe them. No excuses. No fantasies. Just reality. Do not tolerate immaturity or boors or anyone that is manipulative. Be reasonably direct, ask for what you want and expect the same courtesy.
