      Well, it’s hard to see someone make certain decisions and know exactly where they’ll end up as a result. And then 20 years later, when you realize you were right, try to be a constant ear of sympathy. It is really hard…

      Regardless of what you think of yourself, a life without someone else in it is not a life worth living. Don’t deprive someone else of a more beautiful life with you in it, and don’t deprive yourself of the same.

      There is usually not one truth. You can say “your life is probably a lot better with me gone” or “your life is probably a lot worse with me gone.” Both can be true. The impact of which one you choose, though, is mostly on you and not on the other person. Also, when you say “I’m sorry I am so pathetic” – I hear this as a statement of hurt, of self-diminishment, and also of suppressed anger.

      It doesn’t work, though. You will never get to where you want to go by minimizing your own value. You are making a value-judgment of yourself, and that is not necessary. It’s just as easy to say “I’m sorry that I was apparently not what you needed right now. And so I am moving on. Fuck you.” The last sentence is optional, though it can be satisfying. Worth noticing your internal reaction to that last part. If there’s a little glow of satisfaction, then you have touched an authentic and perhaps unacknowledged part of yourself…
