"I love you. I respect you. I love being with you, spending time with you. But I do not need you for my contentment. You are not responsible for my happiness. You have never been to blame, nor will ever be to blame, for my unhappiness. You are already released from the intolerable burden of having to live up to my expectations, of having to change to fit my unending needs, of having to be the one to complete me, for I am already complete as I am. I love you. I respect you. As you are."
