I have never understood why on earth you would thought that I didn’t need you. Or why you thought that I was better off without you. Just because I’m a somewhat independent woman, does not mean that I didn’t need you or want you in my life. I did need you & I was NOT better off without you! My need for you wasn’t in the dependent kind of way, but for a shoulder to lean on during hard times. I needed someone who cared about me and wanted to be there for me through the good and bad times. Someone who loved me despite my flaws and the low points in my life. And I still need you and want you in my life.
