Sometimes people play the same part for too long. It's like they are living in an old skin. They grew accustom to it. And even if it became unbearably tight you can't shed your skin. You can't change who you are. You can't make people see you in a new light. Especially if it's someone who took care of you from when you were a kid.
But what if I'm a grown-up now? What if I look at you not the way I used to? What if I love you?
