Rational fear

Okay, now I get it.

My independence scares you because you think I’ll let you go.
My clinginess scares you because you think I’ll never let you go.
My sureness (?) in what I think scares you because you don’t know where you want to go.
My confusion scares you because you think I won’t choose to go where you want to.

And at the end of it all we hear,

Women can bear to have a layer of boiling hot wax poured on their bodies and yanked off. But they can’t stand the sight of a cockroach?

Yeah, we’re very logical too.
