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.
