“ I don’t mean to compare what we have to anything I’ve dealt with in the past. Trust me, I don’t want to make things harder than they have to be on anyone else – especially you. But the truth is that I can’t remember the last time anyone stayed after promising they would. Just know that I would never consciously push you away. I’m just overwhelmed and exhausted from begging people to stay.
