I should have been less needy. I should have been less insecure. I should have adjusted my needs to what you were able and willing to give. I should have felt more gratitude toward the efforts you made. I should have modified my way of interacting with you. It was all my fault. No wonder you’ve given up trying to hold me. No wonder you let me go. There were sharks everywhere at the bookstore today. All I wanted was to send you pictures.
