I won’t take a bullet for anyone because if I have time to jump in front of a bullet, you have time to move.
If I can save you now, it means that you could have saved yourself for quiet a while.
I will not be your instigator. I will not save you, for then you’ll stop saving yourself, and you’ll always expect someone to be there to save you – and that’s a horrible thing to do to you.
No, I won’t take the bullet for you, for if I do, you’ll never learn how to dodge bullets.
