The Life-Changing Art of Disappointing People

Dear Sir,

I regret to inform you that my love for myself has made the difficult decision to override my integrity at this time. This must be hard for you. You were banking on my integrity, which up until recently, led me to please you at my own expense.

Yes, I said I would.

Yes, I’ve changed my mind.

No, I will not continue to sacrifice myself. Because the truth is, when I hold you in my mind, it doesn’t bring me joy.

Yes, you’re disappointed.

And I’m going anyway.

And life goes on,

and keeps getting better.

Onward and upward.
