It continues to feel as though you can have a relationship OR speak the truth about your need to be free, to be an individual.
The glamorous veneer isn't quite changing things, nor is it totally honest, but it is working. It's as though it would be cool to sneak your changing needs in under the wire of the existing relationship. And you are verey verbally adroit today.
Whatever veneer you adopt out of perceived necessity, you act in a way that satisfies your identity and your emotional needs.
