My ex-husband subscribed wholeheartedly to this philosophy... And while it's true, it still doesn't mean the other person gets to act like a jerk without repercussion. I will have those feelings and I will (eventually, when pushed enough) act on them - if you're not on board with working them out with me, then I'm willing to bet you're not going to like the way I try to work them out.
Good luck to you, TN (and I'm sorry, but I can't call you "Tennessee" without doing the Chumley voice in my head
). I hope for the best for you...
