"I am so frustrated with him right now. He knows ... he knows how much I like him, he knows I'd do anything just to keep him around. But I'm beginning to stand up for myself and learning just because I want something, doesn't always mean I need it. I might get hurt in the process of drifting from him, but I'm saving myself from the hurt I will be feeling when he leaves me again for her. I'm becoming the person I always thought I could be."
