I understand. I am sure Mrs. Hold feels this way. I agree it would be healthier for me to do so.

Still, I don't ever see it happening. Not justifying. Not saying that is OK. Just saying it is.

I see it as a weakness in myself. I accept it is destroying any chance I might otherwise have for happiness. Yet I do not see myself ever choosing to base my happiness on anything else.

Why the heck do you think I am so depressed?!?! I know what I need to do to be happy. And I refuse to do it. THAT is tremendously depressing. And it is not her fault. It is mine.

When you can see it coming, duck!
