A world painted in the eyes of being unloved can never compare to one where you know beyond any measure…
You are loved.
You do matter.
Your life has meaning.
You are a priceless treasure.
30 years…living life in a haze of a lie…
Fear has the power of taking one painful memory & causing it to infinitely multiply.
I used to think I could hate you forever…
As if holding on was noble or justified in my mind, however…
Drinking in my own misery & resentment only served to sever
Every pathway to loving myself once more.
& Although you hurt me I found a way back to love & stopped keeping score.
Love me, but don’t adore
An image of me you created in your mind.
You made me cherish moments where life & the love around me are truly kind.
Fear is the one lost & blind.
For love…is the truth I hold now deep within my heart.
I’m ready to live the rest of my life, for this is the most beautiful part.
