Hopefully you can see that in no way am I belittling you or your stand for what is healthy for you. I respect you.
I owe you a bit of an apology my friend. I have been going through some stuff outside of my relationship as well as within it. The culmination of pressures has been weighing me down and making me repeat a pattern I think I will talk about on another thread. In short, I was out of line with my reply. I was coming from a place of frustration and hurt. I pushed at the people around me to see if they would turn away. Yet again they held on.
