If I loved you, I would tell you this:
I would tell you that for all you know I have cancer. And that is why you should be kind to me. I would tell you that for all you know I have cancer that has spread into my liver and my bones and that now I understand there is no hope. If I loved you, I would say: you shouldn't be so hard on us. On me and on Sam.Because it may not even be just the cancer.~Robin Black, If I Loved You
If you love someone and you have a fatal illness you tell them about your impending death because you owe them the truth. For anybody else, it doesn't matter.
