I’ve had a lot of time to think over the past several weeks, and I realized something, and I thought it was important to tell you now:  But you were right:  It’s hard for me to admit but I think I became a really needy guy in our relationship and in many instances acted more like another kid that you had to take care of instead of an adult.  That’s not who I wanted to be, and it’s not who I wanted you to be with…  Cause you have a million things going on in your life, and what you need is someone who can share the load with you instead of being a dead weight.  The last thing you need is another child to raise, and the way I acted must have been exhausting for you to say the least….  and I’m sorry for that.
