Why Do You Get To Sacrifice Yourself?

Jinna Yang

Why do you get to sacrifice yourself?

You aren’t Mother fucking Teresa.

You aren’t Jesus Christ.

You aren’t Buddha or the Dali lama.

Who says you get to neglect and abandon yourself?

Who says it’s okay to shove your desires and wants under a rug?

How is that doing anyone any favours?

How is you suppressing your truth healing anything or anyone?

It’s not, and now that you’ve spent a lifetime suppressing it and not trusting yourself you claim you can’t hear it but it’s there, baby.

It’s growling in your womb.

It’s growling in your belly. It’s growling in your toes. It is just waiting to be unleashed so you may walk with surety and serve this world by serving yourself.

Be a hero and rescue yourself. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
