Because it’s fun?”
I said, “Oh my God.” He said, “It’s a way to deal with your stress.” I said, “Well why don’t you just go dancing?” He said, “I don’t want you to get hurt, or scared, or any of those. I don’t want you to be a nuisance, or a problem.” I said, “I’m not that guy.” If I get hurt, it happens. I don’t want to get hurt. What do you want me to do? Dance? Go into my life?
That’s when he said, “What does that have to do with me?” I said, “It has to do with you because you said you don’t want me taking your place. You had a problem with me, and they didn’t realize my job was to be your protector.” He said, “Oh well I didn’t realize that. No, I’m just saying, you shouldn’t think I don’t care about you.” I said, “I don’t care if you don’t care because this is the least I can do to help to stop you from running from a problem.” I knew what he was saying from the way we had talked. He said, “You know what I’m gonna do? I’m gonna make you get out into the street.” I said, “Really?! What about me? I’m good looking!” He said, “You’re not.” I said, “Okay, I’ll just get a haircut.” He said, “Now, I’m not giving you a raise. I’m gonna make you take the bus.” I said, “Yeah, that’s okay.” There’s nothing wrong with living in the moment. In fact, it’s so vital that we have all been taught to live like that. Everything that we’re taught to do is for the benefit of the other person. We’re taught and instructed to be nice to somebody in the moment. That’s what all of us have taken to heart. It’s really a form of survival, right? So when you think about the concept of a protector, this person is our protector. So when you think about the concept of protecting yourself, this person is the protectors, right? So, that means that you have complete freedom, right? So your relationship is as close to being in perfect harmony as possibly possible, for all of you, and we have to allow for that, right? I said, “Sure, of course.”
