I get that you have issues. We all do. When you put those issues in boxes you think have little effect on us, you’re fooling yourself and disrespecting me, not to mention the other awesome women in your life.
When we have a problem, stemming from your issues, and you prefer to live in a pretend world, only acknowledging what you think you have to, you make your issues my burden. I’m done addressing your issues. If you want to talk about it, I’m here for you, just don’t expect me to raise this for you. I’ll deal with how this shakes me up on my own, since you offer no support.
You believe I’m ignorant and seem happier when I pretend, so that’s what I’m going to do for you. Pretend. —For your love
