Before this I was too concerned about other people: their feelings, their needs, their comfort, what they thought about me...

This incident is the first step on getting to my current state of I DON’T CARE! I do what I want. I was 21 and the scales fell from my eyes.

I still care about others but I care more about myself and my needs. I come first.

The asshole cheated and then broke up with me before I could dump him. And I was very angry so I called him a few weeks later and said I was pregnant. I let him stew for a week and then told him I needed $500 for an abortion. He paid and I took my best friend on a road trip and had the best damn time EVER
