How can you tell someone who wants to start over that you will never look at them the same? How can you hurt that person who put you through immense pain when you don’t want to hurt them at all? How can you tell them that when you don’t want to put them through what they had done to you?
What are you expected to do when something you were forced to give up on suddenly returns to you? What are you suppose to do when the one thing that you felt so much pain from comes back and asks to make things better? What are you expected to do when the person – the person who you once trusted, the person who once left you broken hearted – come back and wants things to go back to how they were?
I can’t push someone away and abandon them when they need me. That’s not who I am. That is not who I will ever be.
But I can’t bring myself to trust this person anymore…
