She showed how much she needed him
and yet … he pushed her away.
I’m sorry I left. I’m sorry I walked out.
But you kept breaking my heart, and I kept letting you. And I need to have my own back, you know? I need to protect myself. Because there was no guarantees that I’ll be with you forever. But I will be with myself forever, and someone has to watch out for me.

If I have harmed anyone, in any way, either knowingly or unknowingly through my own confusions, I ask forgiveness.
If anyone has harmed me, in any way, either knowingly or unknowingly through their own confusions, I forgive them.
And if there is a situation I am not yet ready to forgive, I forgive myself for that
For all the ways that I harm myself, negate, doubt, belittle myself, judge or be unkind to myself through my own confusions, I forgive myself.
