In the circle, not the inner circle but the circle all the same; there’s a person who sometimes overwhelms me.
I find this person overbearing and the more you offer up, the more is expected. I used to be so close with this person and I spent a lot of time in their company. The older they get, the more spotlight they want in our lives. In some respects I understand the reasons, but this is an intelligent person were talking about and surely they see that with the actioms they are choosing, they are pushing me/us away. You give an inch and a mile is taken.
How do you stop someone taking a mile when they are, seemingly fragile for reasons outside their control? How do you tell someone they’re too much when you don’t want them to hurt?
Stop, I love you, but….
