RE: Dear John letter to the old me from the new me:
Dear Ms. Gabrielle:
I am writing to let you know my intentions regarding our long and torturous relationship: The time has come to inform you that this is no longer working for me and I want out.
I have given this a great deal of thought and have come to the conclusion that the whole arrangement was a poor idea, one based upon neediness and
co-dependence, rather than one which could possibly be a solace and support within and towards the world at large.
I believe that it is time to separate so that we might both have a chance to move on with our lives
and I realize this will be difficult for you to do,
that you do not know who you are without using my
name, heart, and brain, that you are completely dependent upon me, that I am, literally your higher self, your only hope, your light in the darkness.
But I just can not support your selfishness and neediness any longer.
I too, regret that I have become so identified with
your physical and emotional needs that I am uncertain how to even begin a life free of imagined emergencies and overwhelming demands. Yet I find you exhausting and I am incensed at your attitude of entitlement to my valuable time.
I must ask that you do not attempt contact with me. I refuse to be held hostageany longer to your incessant attention-getting ploys.
I will however, admit that you were stimulating and even that I will miss our moments of intimacy, but I believe that I will eventually find more satisfying relations with one with whom I am not so entwined. I believe our relationship has become incestuous and immoral and ask only that you return to me the things with which I first entered this relationship: my body and my mind.
Wishing you better luck in future relationships,
