I find that I am too nice, and/or too willing to compromise on conflict against my best interest because I feel that anything bad I say or do might be the catalyst for someone to commit suicide. How do I combat this feeling?
I almost never insult people, never do anything bad to people, etc. and while of course this is a good thing, I often can't act in my own interest because I'm worried I might cause someone harm.
As an example, I'm having trouble breaking up with my girlfriend right now because she is in love with me, and I find myself worried that breaking up with her could send her plummetting into depression and maybe suicide.
Statistically/logically I know this is unreasonable. But alas I still have this peculiar feeling. Does anyone have any good justification or outlook that might make me see more clearly?
