I can't put it off any longer. I have to lay it all out there in no uncertain terms.
I voiced my needs. I stepped up and tried to get things done myself and hit a brick wall.
I have done everything I could myself, and have empty hands.
I explained exactly what needed to be done, step by step. It didn't happen.
I am in a hard place.
I hate people who make demands, but what else can I do?
I literally can't live like this, and I am not ready to die.
I have to decide what I honestly believe I have a right to ask for.
I have to decide what I am willing to deal with.
I have to decide what I will do if the answer is "no".
My future is hanging in the balance, so to speak.
I am scared.
