stop blaming me for your issues with dad. i appriciate you and everything you've done for me. is that not obvious? i don't disrespect you and i lie to you to protect you from the things i'm really doing. i know it hurts when i lie, but my lies hurt a lot less than the truth does.
so, please, i'll comply with the rules as long as you stop trying to control me. and don't ever, ever, FUCKING EVER blame this on matt, ever again.
he's the best thing that's happened to me in a while. i just wish you would take the time to stop making judgements and get to know him for the amazing guy that he is.
