I’m becoming really good at leaving, at lying to people, at keeping my distance from everyone I need close by.
becoming who you are
You are constantly trying to be as self-aware as possible, even if that means addressing things about yourself that you don’t like or that you feel insecure about.
You have stopped defending yourself constantly. You have stopped making so many excuses and instead, have learned to fess up and apologize when it’s necessary to do. In your friendships, relationships and in your life in general, you have learned to be more humble and to do the right thing no matter how hard it may be.
They told me it was a hobby, not a job. That I’d never get paid for writing. That I should go back and get a proper job with a pension plan and dental and stop trying to get paid for something I enjoyed doing.
You appear to be bold and strong, but most of the time, you feel extremely insecure about your own life.
So many people think that reality not living up to their expectations is failure, but really, it is often a sign of success. Life shouldn’t look the way you once thought it would.
Don’t give advice that you can’t follow yourself.
I don’t like you for doing this to yourself, I hate you for doing this to me and I despise you for doing this to us.
I wanted you to look at me with more loving eyes than you did your girlfriend at that time.
I’ve changed, mainly because of you. I’ve grown so much. The years have changed me. Life was hard after you walked away but it gave me everything I needed to follow my dreams. To live a life I’m proud of.
