I am me
The pain inside
Defines who I am
The internal bruises, the scars
Are a definition of my emotions
When it all comes to an end?
Who am I without the hurt?
This is my beauty
This is me
Why would you want to change for someone else anyway? Shouldn’t they accept you for who you are?
If you find yourself lacking in something, make the effort to change for yourself…
If you find yourself in the wrong, do something to correct it not because of someone else but for you…
I know I’ve changed in these past six months…. Not for anyone else…. But for myself…. I’ve changed to protect myself so I wouldn’t get hurt… I’ve changed because I felt like I was taken for granted…. I’ve changed because I was tired of ridiculed and not appreciated….
I changed for myself…
Today wasn’t necessarily a good day. I went through a roller coaster of emotions all morning and afternoon. I spent pretty much the entire day in my room, with the curtains closed and barely any light cuz I felt so low. Yet I feel like something good came out of being that way all day. I don’t understand why I felt a little lost, bewildered and alone (I know I could have gone out and done something) but I feel like being by myself taught me something valuable so all is not lost out of today. Sometimes some things happen in our lives and even though often we do not understand it, it benefits us in many ways and we should be thankful. Simply put, it pays to have a little faith.
Alone is a room to me too. I like it. I’m comfortable there and no one disturbs me. No one criticizes me. No one judges me. No one puts me down. No one tells me what to do, what to say or what to where. I like it. I’m at ease. I’m safe to feel what I want. I’m safe to say what I want. I’m safe to do what I want. I am entirely who I am when I’m alone.
