Something has happened.
Something most decidedly not good.
I sit here today trying not to think about this choice that I've been given. Not that it's much of a choice. I already know what my decision is. I only had to think about it for maybe two seconds after it was presented to me.
I know what I'll do. I'll do what's right. Not right for me, and not right for her, and not right for us. But what's right nonetheless.
So, I said the words.
I said the words and it wasn't enough. She wanted proof.
I cannot prove that I love her. Not the way she wants.
But I can, I can prove something else.
I can prove that, at my core, I am a good person.
She should have already known that.
She shouldn't need proof.
