Which, actually, we don't know if it has gone sour or not yet. And even if it has, nothing will change. There's not going to be a negative outcome from this. It's just going to be no outcome. So lost work on their part and my part, but no bad consequence. They're really angry at me, because I got upset when they said that I ruined everything. I don't know how to get them to see that they went about it in a way that wasn't at all how I would've handled it and it's not fair to come in and take over someone's life, do a bunch of shit they didn't ask help with for them, and do it in a way that they can't reasonably participate in. They say that I asked for help, and I am extremely ungrateful to critique their help. I have already said I am sorry and thank you about a million times to them, but they maintain that I am ungrateful and trying to fight against them despite their hard work. Normally, I would just completely write them off and never talk to them again, but this is someone that I feel really attached to. Arghhhhh.

    Edit - I think I just figured out that this was sort of a J vs P perspective issue. I think they thought the goal was the goal while I thought that the goal was helping me reach the goal.
    no it's more of they're not acepting responsibility for the part they played.

    I approach everything with logic, but that makes me very easy to troll. (It's also incredibly hard to resist taking the bait when the entire troll is based on fallacies.) I hate me.

    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    Thanks for all the support and suggestions, you guys. We talked it through. He listened to me for a long time and acknowledged that he was really wound up about it because he had gotten really personally invested in it. He apologized for taking it over and for venting at me. It was actually surprisingly touching on his part. I had been expecting fire and brimstone. He was calm and apologetic. It was really nice.

    I feel really angry at life right now. What's the point in ranting though?

    Have you tried it before? Sometimes it just feels good to get all that pent up emotion out in writing. I'm sure it doesn't work for everyone but it seems to be common. Sorry life is being a pain in the ass for you right now.
