It’s not goodbye, it’s just tough love.
Your addiction has taken over your life completely and I cannot allow it to take over mine.
Dealing with someone who you love that has an addiction is gut-wrenching and heartbreaking. It’s hard to sit back and watch them make life choices you know are going to hurt them. It’s even harder to just step back.
I’m sorry that I cannot be the person you need right now. But I hope one day you can understand that addiction for the people around the addict is mentally and emotionally exhausting. I have to do what is best for me and that means stepping back.
I want you to understand that I love you and that is why I have asked that you get help. However, because you see that as an attack there isn’t much more I can do for you at this point. Except love you from a far.
I hope that you see that this is serious. That you consider some of the situations that your addiction has put you in and that you decide that getting help is what you need.
I hope that you decide that your life is more important than this addiction. The way that it is taking your life over I’m afraid that it’s going to take your life.
I hope that you see just because your a functioning for now doesn’t mean that your mistakes won’t catch up to you. That someday your entire life could come crashing down around you because you didn’t listen and hear the love that I have for you.
At this point I just need you to know that I’m hoping for your recovery and loving you from a far. That is all I can do for you for now.
Please stay safe 💔
