Despite my knowing You never give me more than You know I can handle, I swear it doesn't feel like it sometimes. You sometimes ask too much of me and my fragile, frail shoulders. And I wish You'd stop that.
I've been the "good guy" all my life and sometimes I think all the respect garnered for doing the right thing isn't nearly as good as the happiness that I think I deserve more.
Please stop making me choose respect over happiness. Can't I have both? Can't Your plan for me include my own happiness?
Make me stronger. Thank you.
PS: Even your son had his doubts.
PPS: I want my Sylvia fucking Plath.
