I behave and you think it’s because of you.
You take my choices personally.
It’s not about you
My choices have nothing to do with you.
Even when they are in reaction to you.
How I behave is about me.
It’s my stuff
It’s about me. Despite what I might say.
Even when I tell you you’re not good enough.
It about me trying to control you, trying to mold you into what I think you should be.
It’s about what I think, what I want.
I want to impose my will. I want my control.
Don’t take on my stuff
Don’t react to me.
Don’t hurt your Self and take it personal.
Remember it’s not you, it’s me.
When it’s about you
You’ll know it. You’ll feel it.
For I’ll be giving to you the things you need.
Like love and support.
If I’m not offering those things, please believe me, it’s not you, it’s me.
