When You Finally Decide To Focus On Yourself

Shannon Kelley

I woke up this morning and everything was different.

That feeling you get right when a plane lifts off from the ground,
the fear of the unknown and the exhilaration that it’s going to be okay.

The feeling when you’re standing at the edge of a rooftop, scared of falling yet thrilled that you can conquer it.

That’s how I feel.

I feel indifferent to the world.

Everyone mattered before this. Everything that was said or done meant something to me.

Now I’m the only one that matters.

I removed myself from the situation and when I looked at the reality of things, it was never right.

I was so attached when I was in it.

I took a step back I realized how easy it was all along.

Love can wait.
People can wait.
Sanity cannot.

I need me. I need to come first. I need to take care of me, before I can take care of anyone else. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
