I made a mistake-that I owned up to when it happened-but what you have done and continue to do is criminal. I never claimed to be perfect, or to have the virtues that you labelled upon me. You claimed those things and then set out in a desperate, rabid attempt to prove to the world that I'm not those things. You stand with your righteous finger pointing still "look at what SHE did!" I never claimed perfection, I have always lived my life just trying to be a good person and my kindness towards others doesn't stem from a need to be liked or validated, like you claimed, but rather from a deep sense of self-love. I am kind and forgiving to others because I can do that for myself. You claim to be waiting, to make me look like a jerk that is keeping you waiting, that owes you something. I don't. I told you why, and I told you not to contact me again. Indefinitely. So I understand that it's not because you are unclear on things, it's to troll me further. You do you. And I'm gonna continue being me, despite the fact that my life will never be the same again. People kill themselves over what you are doing. Overkill. But that's who you are. A monster. I may be an imperfect human, but at least I can feel my heart and soul resting peacefully.
