The player always ends up played. When you attempt to play the one who actually cares about you, you’re actually playing yourself.
I’m a selfish person. I do nothing, but I expect everything from you. I want you to stay by my side, but I treat you horribly whenever you do. I blame you for not being there, and yet, I don’t acknowledge you for all the times you are there - and that is most of the time, I admit. And, then I go about thinking it’s all your fault when really, I’m the one to blame for being the selfish, terrible person that I am.
