Dear one,

Holding someone accountable to a standard they didn’t set for themselves is a form of control that is both manipulative and abusive. It’s something that I have been guilty of. My expectations are not your responsibility. I have held myself to unreasonable standards for most of my life. That’s my choice. But holding someone else to those standards isn’t my right.

I am a work in progress. I hope you are, too.

Never forget that I love you, and that excludes no one.
