I know they need me and I know they love me too. But I have had enough.
They aren't that bad, I just need to get away. I need some time to be alone and take care of me for a little while.
I'm harder on myself than they are on me, and they will understand if I take off. No one actually expected me to stick around for so long. I didn't intend to, but they needed me, so I make sure I'm always close.
It isn't their fault they need me, but they do. I feel so bad that I want to take off and live so far away. But I really feel I need to. I don't think I will last being so close to them for much longer.
I love my family and I will always be there for them. But if I can't do that from a distance, at least for a while, I'm going to explode.
