This isn't working. We both know that it hasn't been working for a very long time.
It's not you…no actually, it is you. This is an unhealthy, dysfunctional, abusive relationship because of you. You are stifling, controlling, oppressive and you have never had my best interest at heart. You have tricked me into believing that things are the way they are because they have to be, that they have always been that way, that there are no alternatives and that they will never change. Anytime I questioned you or your ways, you found another way to silence me and coerce me back into submission. I can't do this anymore. I've changed and in spite of your shackles, I've grown. I have realized that this whole restrictive system is your own fabrication and that the only one that is gaining anything from it is you. You bastard.
I will not continue to live like this. I will not continue to settle. I know now that there is a better way.
Before you hear about it from one of your boys, you should know that I have met someone. Her name is Feminism. She is the best thing that has ever happened to me. She validates and respects my opinions. She ALWAYS has my best interest at heart. She thinks that I am beautiful and loves me just the way I am. She has helped me find my voice and she makes me happier than I have ever been. We have made each other stronger. Best of all, we encourage and challenge each other to grow. And the sex…the sex is so much hotter.
I'm leaving you. You're an asshole. We can never be friends. Don't call me. Ever.
