What I realize about myself is that I too an infected. I believe that the person hurting should be the one to walk away from a conflicting relationship. If only emotions were that simple. There is so much going on when you care for someone to just walk away is not ever the answer.
I need to learn this. Although many have tried, most have failed at teaching me. The ones who stayed are some of my closest friends now, we just had to experience growing pains to – get this – grow. Others seem not to be able to tolerate my solicitous nature and walk away, ironically cause I don’t pay them enough attention. Isn’t that funny?
I started writing and now I don’t want to finish.
