Passive aggressive

Posted on Wed, Oct 10, 2012 at 11:09 AM

I think I've finally realized that no matter how much I love you, this will never, ever, ever work. How can it? You can't take the slightest criticism. I can't even tell you to put your seat belt on. I'm really trying here but it's a lost cause. You'll never change. You do this to me all the time. I love you and I care about you so, so much and truly want you to find peace and happiness but it seems like you're always angry at me. You go silent on me for weeks, months like it's nothing to you, like I don't even exist. You want to hang out but make zero effort. You're clearly afraid to get close to me. Is it so hard to believe that someone actually loves you? I know your family life has been unimaginably rough but I just want to help you through it. You deserve to be loved and cared for and all I want is to give it to you but you can't accept it. You can't live this way. Your own unhappiness will eat you alive and I don't want to stand around to watch it happen. —Dazed and Confused
