You’re changing, which is a form of leaving

Who do you think you are? 

We liked you better when you did everything we wanted you to do. 

But then you just had to start growing and maturing and taking the time to care for your own needs. And now it’s just not the same between us. Ever since you decided to wake up and get off your treadmill of obligations, now you’re not a deluded as you used to be. 

And that’s scary. It’s like you’re abandoning us. Leaving us alone, locked in our dysfunctional ways of living, left to confront our own anxiety instead of masking it through the opiate of controlling others. 

How dare you try to be something different. How dare you not melt down into our collectivist pot of conformity. How dare you not feel guilty about exercising your fundamental human rights. How dare you not uphold the one and only identity we’ve assigned to you. 

Where we come from, there’s a little something called loyalty, and it should be maintained at all costs. 

By the way, dinner is at six. See you soon! 


What will happen when you start to grow and those around you become uncomfortable with the changes you are undergoing?
