NONE OF THIS WAS SAID OR EVEN IMPLIED!!!
But of course this is where I'm going with it in my head. Mostly because no one could ever just honestly be looking out for me, they always are just trying to get me to be what they think I should be, or better yet, make me go away.
But why bother to tell me things at all then. Why not just tell me to go away. He knows I would. The reason is he doesn't want me to go away, and he isn't trying to make me something I'm not, he's trying to help me be my best in the only ways he knows how.
And he isn't wrong about what he had to say, which is part of why I'm so pissy about it. I'm going to have to write about this some more...get some of it out of my head.
