Our affection for you is not restricted, 1 but you are restricted in your affections for us.
We are not withholding our affection from you, but you are withholding yours from us.
You are not restrained by us, but you are restrained in your own affections.
If there is a problem between us, it is not because of a lack of love on our part, but because you have withheld your love from us.
We didn't fence you in. The smallness you feel comes from within you. Your lives aren't small, but you're living them in a small way.
It is not our feelings to you which are narrow, but yours to us.
There is no restriction in our affections, but only in yours.
You are not restricted by us, but you are restricted by your own affections.
