Once this happened to me, I had to revise everything that I thought was going to do, my plan failed. So, in her eyes it was like I failed also, but she still hung with me because of the way I treated when I was walking, I never treated her badly or anything. I could tell it bothered her, because she lost a lot of weight; she used to be crying at night sometimes. She needed to go outside sometimes just to get some fresh air, I didn't want her to because I needed attention. And after that, we argued a couple of times but I had to figure out, like, I did this to myself, and I can't be on her like that cause she still has her whole life to live. So, we still talk on a daily basis, she tells me everything, I tell her everything.
