One of BF's biggest complaints about me is that I'm too sensitive. I agree that I am not as thick skinned as I probably need to be, especially if I'm going to stay with him, but in my mind I legitimately get my feelings hurt by something I consider mean or rude. So this has been my pattern during our time together: He says something to me that I get offended about and we have an argument. Then I decide I need to stay away and not have any communication for awhile while I stew about what an asshole he is and try to decide if I want to continue in this relationship. I can be very stubborn and he also is very stubborn, so days and sometimes a week or two go by without any communication. It's usually him that finally calls and we end up working things out, but he hates that I don't have good conflict resolution skills. I'd like to work on that, but I also think he's manipulative and I don't like feeling like he's always right and I'm the one that has the problems to work on. Ugh, this sounds so childish, but I'm willing to work on my issues, just not sure how. Books, counseling, any ideas???
