It’s not you, it’s me.
I love you dearly. You’ve changed my life. You inspire me to be a better person.
But sometimes our relationship is so intense…I feel like I am suffocating. It’s not your fault. It’s totally mine. It’s the way I relate to you, it’s nothing that you are doing, I promise…it’s all me.
Gosh, I feel better having said that. See, sometimes I just need to assert my independence, take a little break, get some perspective. Like today. I just needed some time to myself. To work through some stuff on my own. I think that taking a step back is healthy…for me….for us. It helps me to appreciate you more…so that when I come back to you, I am fresh and hopefully, even more committed. And I so so so appreciate that you are here for me when I get like this and that I can rely on you to be there for me when I come back to you.
