Is it any wonder one would fear you, or at least fear crossing you?

It should be no wonder. At the same time, is it any wonder they crave my love? It is far more intense than my ire. I found out their shame keeps them away for years sometimes, until they feel strong enough to be who they really are with me. Anyone who spends a length of time with me will be aware I don't tolerate b.s. They always come back around. Even decades later. I am glad of this.

They're undoubtedly even more afraid of themselves, than they are of you. Few and far between are willing to look straight into that mirror you're holding up. Even though they'll be better for it.
