i wish you had told me you were 
struggling with addiction.
i know it’s troubling and embarrassing, 
but i need you to know that i’ll never judge you 
the way you judge yourself.
i understand that sharing your burdens
can feel cathartic while also inviting
a new kind of pressure.
but i’m not here to pressure you, guilt trip you, 
or act like we’re living in a perfect world 
where you’re the only one fucking up.
we absolutely aren’t. you’re definitely not.
you don’t have to promise me your sobriety
that promise belongs to you.
just let me know if you need a distraction 
to avoid crashing again.
