Dear Dr. Freud,
While I can appreciate your theory and may even believe that there may be some validity in your ideas, I must point out the following:
1. Anger: this is a major factor in keeping us so far apart. The rules are different for me; as are the expectations.
2. Resentment: it builds daily and instead of being dealt with, it is hidden beneath a hundred blankets between us. Do as I say.
3. Sadness: mine.
4. Disconnection: it is not a matter of flipping a light switch; and to imply as much is a cavalier notion.
5. Exhaustion: gross misallocation of life tasks.
If I was not so pained and exhausted, I would weep for the lack of spark. The amount of “work” that you have put before me.
All my responsibility.
