Used to believe my self worth was kept with you.

Reflecting back…I don’t have good enough reasons for what I once tied myself to.

I guess I just wanted to feel loved, but the more I wanted you to see, the less I saw of me…

Growing up…it felt like I had no air to breathe.

There was always a caveat to the love I could receive.

So I searched in you for the worth I didn’t know how to give myself.

I didn’t know it then…you were the one who needed support and help.

And I don’t want to live in the past, when there’s so much more life to live.

Some hold onto the pain, some let go to fully heal and forgive.
