1. I am not sorry that I do not want to have to choose between romantic love and the incredible love of a friend.
2. I am not sorry that sometimes I want to talk about something I am interested in instead of cars, bikes, motors, furniture building, welding, extreme sports etc. etc. etc.
3. I am not sorry that sometimes I do not want to have sex. And it’s not because I am tired, or because I feel sick, it’s just because sometimes I don’t want to.
4. I am not sorry that sometimes I want it to be about me. I want the sex to be about my orgasm. I want the conversation to be about my feelings and my day. I want the plan to be convenient for me.
5. I am not sorry that sometimes I have priorities other than you.

I’m not sorry I have shut you out of my life in order to protect my peace. I’m not sorry I still cry when I think about the fact that that decision (likely) hurts you. I am not sorry for uncontrollable empathy. I’m not sorry I feel a little bit good every time I say ‘no’ to an unwanted advance. I’m not sorry for working to eliminate compulsive ‘yes’s’ and replace them with thoughtful ‘no’s.’ I’m not sorry!
