“I’m here for you”Posted: Friday, April 5th, 2013
No, you’re not.
And I understand that you’re not lying. You don’t actually know that you can’t be here for me. You don’t know what it involves, so you’re not even aware of the monstrosity that you’re promising me right now.
Even if you knew, I could never allow you to be here for me. Because I would say things like, “I want to be dead now,” in all seriousness, and there would be absolutely nothing that you could say to me to make me feel better or want any differently, despite your best efforts.
You would feel helpless. And I would feel worse because it would only justify my feelings of hopelessness.
