In a feature I call “Your Turn,” in which you, the readers, get to answer the question, I’m presenting the following letter without commentary from me:
Ever since than, he has been distant and stonewalling me. He blames me and his parents for emotionally and mentally abusing him because we fight and argue with him. He says he is disgusted by the thought of me and his parents. He does still talk to me on the phone (not as often though) but hardly speaks. He says he doesn’t know what to say. I tried apologizing for my immaturity and asked him for another chance but all I hear is: “I wanna be left alone.” I give up. I don’t know what to do. I have become extremely depressed because we were very close emotionally.
The more he distances himself from me, the more I nag and act needy. We were so happy. He even admits to the fact that we had a perfect relationship but somehow blames me for always arguing with him. He says I have lost him and he doesn’t feel emotions for anyone at all and that he has to “bear” my voice when he talks to me. Please let me know what I can do to help him (he says there’s nothing I can do to help him because he doesn’t need pity, care or love from anyone) and what I can do to help this relationship and get back the person I fell in love with. — Sick of His Cancer
