I’ve been thinking about this for a long time. How do we move forward from the limbo we’ve been in for years? First, I had to understand why it is we’ve been stuck for so long.
The truth is, it’s not me, it’s you. Well, not you exactly, but the way you have tried to lead this relationship. Just stop. It’s clearly not working. Yes, I love you, and you could lead me to the corners of the earth or to my own death, but we will never be together. Your way has always been doomed because it neglects my feelings and my needs. The only thing that’s going to make this work is a paradigm shift in our relationship.
We’re doing this my way now.
No more games. No more lies. No more making me feel like shit. From now on, your love, by itself, is not enough. You have to respect me too. Your words, they are beautiful and they make me feel really special, but they are not enough. If you love me the way you say you do, its time for you to act.
This time, you will be the one to bend, you will be the one to compromise. You will not be rejecting me anymore; you will be the vulnerable one. The last time we ‘spoke’, I made you a promise. I keep my promises.
If you want to see me again, if you want to make this happen, and see how far this journey can take us together, then you’re going to reestablish contact. Its as simple as texting me “Hi”. You could do it because you love me. You could do it because you are the one who cut off contact in the first place. You could even do it because you realize that nothing else has ever worked. But you’re going to do it because I’m telling you to. You are mine, don’t ever forget that.
