Poetry & Literature / me gustaria saber si me podian ayudar a traducir esto.. es partye de la letra de uan cancion
English term or phrase: While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight
I'm sober now for 3 whole months it's one accomplishment that you helped me with
The one thing that always tore us apart is the one thing I won't touch again
In a sick way I want to thank you for holding my head up late at night
While I was busy waging wars on myself, you were trying to stop the fight
You never doubted my warped opinions on things like suicidal hate

Explanation:
Evito construcciones demasiado complejas porque así queda más natural y menos forzado. A veces, los verbos en inglés no tienen el mismo valor que en español.

También se podría decir "contra mí mismo" en vez de "conmigo".
