That anger after a question, it was scary.
I asked a question because I was curious and you promoted curiosity, but your cold response was scary.
And when I probed further, the way I was discarded, was scary.
Not because of the question, but because to me our trust of such long relationship was shattered.
I thought I could be vulnerable and share that I needed a help on a question, but your scolding and such big scolding simply showed that you are not at all willing to listen.
Yes you care, but care sometimes means understanding where that question comes from.
The scolding doesn’t hurt, it makes you doubt the relationship that was formed for so long.
And that’s truly scary. Because now you begin to question a lot more good of the past – and if it was good in the first place!
