I'm having a hard time right now. I don't know for sure if I need your help or really what I need from you, but I think we should talk.
I love having you as a main character in my memoir and to change that would completely ruin the character I've become and will become. But, I don't think you can be the main character anymore and have anything other than a never-ending, mundane, repetitious anecdote. When my life story is all said and done, I want people to read it, turn the last page and exhale, having held their breath in excitement and anticipation of the next chapter, the next paragraph, the next sentence! That won't happen if all the adventures that could be are edited out before the first reader gets to enjoy them. So be there for me, but don't hold me back. Let me write the novel that's inside of me with as many words and adventures as I can imagine.
