I still have my good days and my bad….

I’m learning to embrace the pain and stop running away from feeling sad…

There once was a hole in my heart that nothing could ever fill…

But the emptiness slowly began to disappear as I stopped and stayed still….

I started to listen to the voice I had long silenced…

I stopped wanting to live a life that was intense and unbalanced…

The scars are deep and they are real…

But there’s courage and beauty in being able to fully feel…

I can’t change the past but I can let it go…

I can start to live a life more true to me and not one only meant for show….

My whole life….

I took care of you…

And now it’s time to take care of me….

The pain and the memories…

Made me…

But they won’t define the person I’m choosing to be….

And I see the worth of loving myself first and completely…

I was the only person who could decide to be free….
