Hi guise,

I just want to thank everybody on the GT IRC for helping me out with some stuff this weekend. I've come to the conclusion that I have to limit the influence of someone in my life who has been controlling for too long.

here's my problem,though: In the past I've gotten back at this person by engaging in self-destructive behaviors - overeating, not writing, not cleaning, spending too much time on the internet. How do I improve myself for myself, not for that person?
