Villainize before you idealize.
I can’t juggle your expectations and my own sense of self at once. I’ll drop something in the process; and anyway, your imposed presumption is less important to me than soundness of being. Forthright, to avoid wasting time and effort on both our parts, I’ll do you the favor of giving you an image more reconcilable with your streamlined ideas and presumptions, and we can forget this whole exchange of illusions from the start.
