the old me….

wanted revenge but named it justice….

the old me…

just cared about being the most powerful…

controlled everything too obsessively…

the old me…

hit back harder when provoked…

the old me…

had a fragile ego and shattered heart….

the old me…

saw power plays and manipulations every single step of the way….

the old me….

cared more about being the center of attention….

the old me….

believed the whole world revolved around me…

the new me…

knows the world is not just black and white….

the new me…

values compassion and love and kindness….

the new me…

doesn’t have a need to fight back, justify, explain, defend….

the new me…

is secure in who I am…

the new me…

has no desire to harm others to have the upper hand….

the new me…

seeks to learn, grow, heal, love, fully understand….

the new me…

can’t be with the old me…

the new me…

is the one who is free…
