Why are you still here? I’m bad Elena, I’m bad for you so why wouldn’t you have run away from me as far as humanly possible. Now I’m choosing, and I’m choosing to let you go. I’m choosing to not have to think about how you must feel every time some ghost from my past comes into our life. I’m choosing to relieve you of having to defend me for every awful thing that I’ve ever done. Stop defending me. I won’t change who I am, I can’t. But I refuse to change you.
