Where do we set the boundaries between honesty and politeness? How far can we go when speaking the truth?

“Just because you’re alone? Why calling me? Are you afraid of the dark? Do I look like a lamp? In what place am I on your list?”
“Learn to deal with yourself, moron!”
We are not responsible for anyone else’s happiness, but our own. The truth is we need to learn how to deal with ourselves, how to be happy alone until we are ready to share our happiness.

Happy ending or not, it’s plain to see it’s over.
