Hear Me Out
You can’t keep pulling me out of bed in the middle of the night. I should be asleep with my family. I know you get lonely and bored, but I think I have given you more time than I give my own family. It’s not fair to them that after a long night or sometimes days with you, I’m just too exhausted to hang out with them. I don’t expect them to understand what we have, but I know it’s a really messed up situation. Especially for them because it’s not their fault. There has to be some kind of balance here. I don’t see why you have to be with me every freakin’ night. I don’t mind giving you a night or two a week. I’m not greedy or selfish. I won’t just cut you out of my life like that. We have been through a lot but I wouldn’t mind if you cut yourself out of my life. I wouldn’t be angry, kind of relieved actually. If you choose not to, can we please find a middle ground? I’d like to be rested enough to spend more time with the family before it’s too late. Let me know what you come up with and we’ll take it from there.
