Let me bruise my own knees. Take that time you are spending on me and work on you. I am just saying. I don't benefit from seeing your little devil horns on my shoulder all the time. You are heavy and a distraction.
Now that I have put this as gently as I know how let me also say this. I do appreciate your interest in me if that is what it really is ...interest. My lenses see it differently however. I see it as an intrusion. A way of chipping away at me to make me think less of myself and make you feel better about you. It is not working, so STOP IT!
Cross the street back over to you and yours and work on your pieces. I can do bad enough by myself. I have enough to worry about without worrying about you pretending to worry about me. STOP!
Be you doing you and let me do the same.
If you really care about me ask yourself this....Why am I talking to this person in this way? What am I trying to achieve? Where will this end? How do I hope to come out of this on the other side?
When you have answered these questions, tuck yourself back into your thoughts and come at me again. This time, come correct! Now if you will excuse me, I have my life to live.
Signed: A word for all of us to them others.
