I’m very sorry that you found my needs to be hurtful and offensive. However, my needs are a part of who I am, and I’ll no longer deny my needs for anyone ever again, and that includes you.
Yes, I do have a need to communicate on a daily basis. Yes, I do have a need to feel as if I’m valued and loved. Yes, I do have a need to know that the person I’m willing to be there for will be there for me. Yes, I do have a need to move forward in a relationship. Yes, I do have a need to work together to achieve our common goals. And yes, I do have a need to be in a relationship where my needs are taken seriously, as opposed to being dismissed as hurtful and offensive.
Sound familiar? It should. You talked about the exact same things for seven months.
I never thought that you, of all people, could say something so cruel and so heartless. I never thought that you, of all people, would reject me in such a way.
Dismissing someone’s needs is one of the worst forms of rejection. So remember, I never rejected you, you rejected me. I simply said goodbye.
