I realize I waited too long to try and set up our meeting, and I’m willing to accept the consequences of that. You don’t have to be so mean about it – I’m already under enough stress as it is and I’ve acknowledged that I’m the one who messed up here. What you said to me today really hurt.
You probably won’t believe me, but I’m not usually this flaky and I really am trying. I’m actually feeling overwhelmed now and was trying to ask for help.
Don’t count me out just yet.
