Everything I Do Isn't Good Enough.

I aim for the 4.0 this semester.  I get a 93 in english which is one point away from my A.  Only B this semester.  I'm sorry, but I didn't get the 4.0 you wanted me to get.

I try to be nice and listen you what all of you say.  But the truth is, I really don't care what you have to say.  I'm really not that interested.  I'm sorry, but I'm not the best friend you want me to be.

I try to not be outspoken.  I don't mean to tear you down with my remarks.  I'm just being too blunt for you to handle.  I'm sorry, but I'm not the same quiet, caring person you used to know.

I set my standards high and strive for perfection.  I've failed miserably.  I'm sorry, but I'm not the perfect person you want me to be.

So who are you, exactly?  You, my friend, are me.  I'm sorry.  I'm not who I want myself to be.  Not even close.

I am impressed. It show a great deal of maturity on your part to be this self-aware. I wish you the best in your journeys through life and commend you on being so honest with yourself.
