So this list has been brewing in my head all week, and now it's time to share it with you. As always, my intention is that you live an amazing life.
I'm reminded of a story, I don't know if it's true: A middle aged lady walks up to Isaac Stern after a concert. She gushes “Oh, I'd give my life to play like you!”
“Lady,” said Stern acidly, “That I did!” The point is that to have what you want usually takes a bit of effort.
What does this mean? I just want to let you know that I love you. I'm so sorry that I have not been the person that gives you what you deserve.
It sounds like he feels that he just can't, at the end of the day, please you.
There are a number of possibilities here:

You get wiser and you create a framework to make sure you don’t make that mistake again. And then you start putting yourself in places where the kind of opportunities you want are likely to show up.
And if you want help with this, we should talk. To do that click here to schedule.
Disclaimer: I liked the picture, I have no opinion on the book; I've never even seen it before. If you read it, I'd be happy to know what you think about it.
I answer some version of this enough that it's worth my addressing separately. It can also come out as “I'm not in her class.” or “Why would she love me?” or “I can't possibly live up to her standard.” or “What could I offer her?” or “What could she possibly see in me?” or, worst of all “I don't love her as much as she loves me.” Feel free to swap the pronouns: I'm sure women have the same hang-ups.
