breaking up with you.
be surprised. I’ve certainly tried to do it many times before,
but I always weakened and went back to you.
finally woke up and realized this relationship is not good for
me. I’m not getting what I need from you. It’s hurting
me, not allowing me the space to grow in the ways I need to grow.
You’re holding me back.
know I’ll have separation anxiety, but I’ve stayed
with you too long, way past when I should have. This just isn’t
working for me. You don’t listen to me. You don’t
give me attention. You don’t care about what I’m going
through. It’s almost like you don’t have any feelings
for me at all, yet I’ve stuck close to you, helpless and
know you won’t let go of me so easily. I know you’ll
keep calling me, asking me to come back. But please, let me go
the beginning you were always there, ready to calm me and soothe
me, but it went too far. I came to rely on you. I looked to you
for everything. In all fairness, it was too much to ask of you.

some place where I can be loved back. I’ve tried to break

lot, especially during those hard times. I know I’ll be
tempted to come back to you. But this time I’ve got a plan,
things I’m prepared to do when I get lonely and sad. I’ve
been thinking of other ways to celebrate when I’m happy
or proud. I have remedies in place for being bored or tired.
this point you’re a troublemaker in my life and I intend
to keep my emotional distance from you. So in a way, this is goodbye.
Of course, I’ll still come into contact with you day to
day, but let’s just be friends, not lovers.
Don’t cry (although you
never do, it’s me who does all the crying).
