You Are The Dream That Became A Nightmare

He’s possessive because he cares, I gritted my teeth through it. He shouts at me because he wants me the best I can be, I convinced myself. Around 60 percent of the time you were amazing anyway, what did it matter that you struggled to be perfect the other 40? I could live with that, I told myself. I could live with that.

Except I couldn’t.

In 2018, I will continue to grow and to love myself despite mistakes and faults. I’ve never been good at making mistakes. It makes me want to bathe in my own guilt and want to disappear forever, hiding out of shame. But, maybe in 2018, I can learn a healthier way to deal with failure. In 2018, maybe I can learn how to turn my mistakes into something bigger and better. 

How To Let Them Go In 2018

 You will feel like you will be alone forever. And you will think that they were only the person in the world you could ever love you like that. But in time, will come clarity. In time, you will see someone else smile and you will feel less alone. In time, you will be laughing with your friends at all at once you won’t feel sad. In time, will come the comfort from your own heart.

Fine, Maybe It’s Me

It took me a very long time to realize that I could do everything right and still get it wrong because I’m not being true to myself. It took me a very long time to realize that maybe it’s me but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
