I know I seem overly strict, but these fears I have

about becoming a headline remain behind a squall

of your enablement,

and I have to know I won’t be buried under it

if someday I let my guard down and start to trust

other’s judgment again.

So, understand me when I say, though I’ve haven’t always

tried my best to be understanding when it comes

to navigating bumps in our friendship,

I think it best we talk to only ourselves right now.
