Risen There is nothing else that I can expect.

It isn't about me, it never is. It's about guilt and shame and regret that she didn't have more fun while she was playing hooky from her real life.

I am broken as hell, sure. But my being broken this far is not the result of a woman. I am not that fragile. I refuse to be treated as though I am. Someone with zero idea what's been going on in my life doesn't get to say what's broken me.

And they certainly don't get to try to assuage their faux guilt for a faux crime by returning to exactly the same pattern and expecting... I don't even know what.

"I know I was really withdrawn, and you never knew when I was going to be available, and I controlled every single moment we conversed... but here.."

Reminding me of exactly how it felt to wait around for someone, to refresh a page, to try to figure out if it's what I said, or just that there's something more important to do, like literally everything else.

I can't believe I used to consider this torture. But then, I was a novice at torture, really.

Now I know real suffering, I don't need to add this to it.
Notunknown Point listened to, understood, and taken.

And I'm gone.
