I understand if you want to take time out being incapable of addressing and tolerating my volatile emotions.
Actually, scratch that out.
I DO NOT UNDERSTAND IT ALL.
I mean I know I would be willing and available to stand by you when you were going through a challenging time personally or professionally. (Unless of course they are proven excuses and recurring lies).
Isn't is popular that when an individual deserves love the least, he/she needs it the most? Why then, would you not allow me to be myself in this sorry, helpless state? You know me to be independent and strong, but that does not mean I be deprived of or forbidden my weak moments and desperation. Why then do I need to appeal for your empathy and tolerance in my tough times when I call you my dear friend, partner, colleague or family?
Do come back if you must, but with greater patience, empathy and trust.
Coz I deserve my down time.
