Maybe they weren’t pushing you away.
Maybe they were creating boundaries.
Maybe the way they went about it was hurtful,
But maybe they didn’t know how to tell you.
Maybe it was too hard to look you in the face and say the space.
So instead they just stole away, ignored your calls, and canceled plans
Because it was much easier that way.
Maybe that’s why things have been hard
Why it seems like a constant fight.
Maybe, just maybe, they weren’t pushing you away.
Maybe they couldn’t get the boundaries right.
