I have my step-stool to reach the high things, my workout regimen to make me strong enough to move the furniture in my apartment when I need a change, and a steady schedule and budget that I follow to pay my own way.
You may not be a necessary part of my daily functions, and you're not absolutely vital to my physical existence, but the fact of the matter is that I want you.
You have all of my love and trust, the latter of which isn't given freely.
Although I really appreciate your support, I don't need you to step in for me.
If you don't message me back immediately, I won't flip out on you.
I may send you a message just to see how your day is going or to ask a question, but if you're not with me, I won't blow you up. I can come off as so independent that it may be a little discouraging to you, and you might question why I'm with you in the first place.
You being out just allows me to have the alone time that is vital to my existence.
When you get back, I'll sit and listen to the fun things that you did and probably tell you about some of the interesting parts of my day that took place while you were gone.
