when you’re hurting your world becomes smaller and smaller every moment…

until every word and every thought is a strategic move against you…

your mind paints beautiful false illusions…

twisting and turning the reality around you…

until you believe the lies…

everyone is out to harm you…

everything is an adversary…

walls wired with defenses are triggered by the slightest suggestion…

pain is a familiarity and dangerous dependency…

your field of vision narrows until fear is the only thing you can see…

but the world is bigger than me…

bigger than you.

what we do reaches out and creates a domino effect.

no one exists isolated anymore…

over seven billion people sharing a single home.

my life was caught up on one.

living is a struggle…

a choice you make every moment.

to give into fear…

or take courage with love.

believing in yourself is scary.

because it gives you a choice.

a choice of freedom.

where it would be easier not to have one.

I don’t want his words to be what I keep close to my heart anymore…

but rather…

I want my own heart to speak the truth I know.

no matter what he said…

I am loved.

I am needed.

I am worthy.

fear is a gifted liar…

but the truth will always shine the brightest.
