It’s with my deepest regret that we must immediately and urgently part ways. I know we’ve been inseparable for months and months now. I love hanging out with you. I do; however, it’s time to move on. I can’t meet anyone else while you are still in my life. You hide in my closets. You surprise me throughout my day. Sometimes I don’t even realize we are spending so much time together. You are starting to scare me. Believe me, Sugar, it’s not YOU, it’s ME. You have this intense hold on me, and for some reason, I cannot share you with others or change while you are around. I find myself hiding so we can secretly share a moment. I don’t want anyone else to know how much time we spend together or the intensity of our relationship. It’s unhealthy and it’s not me. Our relationship has to end. I know, I know: I don’t want it to end this way either but it must. We cannot go on like this anymore. I have to give you up. I am stepping away. I have to break the hold you have on me. I am making a conscious choice, and guess what; I am stronger than you think. I know you smugly assume, “I’ve got her” but, you do not.
I’m sorry and disappointed it has to end this way. Good-bye Sugar! You are no longer going to fill my days or my closets or my refrigerator or my diaper bag or my purse or my pockets or my car’s glove box. I will no longer accept your calls at any and all times of the day or night. Move on, Sugar. It has to be this way and there is no other alternative. Maybe someday we can reacquaint ourselves but for now: IT IS OVER. Do you hear me? O-V-E-R! Get out of here. Seriously, I mean it. I know in the past, I haven’t been able to separate from you but I am ready. I mean it. I am equipped with the tools and the support I need to make better choices. You are holding me down, Sugar, and I can no longer allow you to do so. So, I leave you with this: thank you for always being there for me at anytime of the day or night. Thank you for giving me emotional support for all sorts of things. Thank you for being delicious, for being available, and for always-always making me temporarily elated. It’s my time to shine now. It’s my time to stand on my own palette’s capability. I’ve been introduced to the juicer, and he and I have a date with kale, spinach, and an apple in the morning. You just don’t fit in anymore. I am sorry. Thank you for understanding, and I know you will find other friends. Please do not get back in touch with me. When I am ready, I will let you know. Yes, I am serious. Gosh, are you not listening? I hope you can respect my wishes. This will be hard for both of us but I know we can do it.
Until we meet again, thank you for listening and for doing whatever you need to do to stay away. Also, one more request: please do not taunt my children. They also need to foster new relationships without your intense influence. Thank you Sugar, thank you for letting me, for letting us go.
