That is fair enough, dearest. So long as you don’t feel compelled to stay by My side, but are choosing of your own volition. Every creature, every being in this universe has the right to dictate their destiny.
Sometimes, that right is stripped from them by those more powerful than they. With Me, I don’t ever want you to feel that your voice is not being heard, or that you are being pushed into matters that go against your nature.
I do My best to think of what you would want, and I also try to consider what is best for you. If I fail to consider your own will in matters, remind Me. I will never deny you your right to your opinions and feelings.
