Because people love you but they love themselves more. They care more about their image. They care more about their reputation and they’ll do whatever it takes to protect it even if it means throwing you under the bus.
You can’t find yourself among those who made you feel lost, abandoned and misunderstood. You can’t revive your soul when you’re surrounded by those who wrecked it.
Thank you for making me cry, the tears washed away the mist that stopped me from seeing your true colors all these years but now I see things more clearly.
Delve into the deep parts of your heart and embrace who you truly are.
A shower. The shower is one of my safe places at home, and when I take a shower I feel like I can think clearer.
Because the people around us have an impact on who we become, they can help us become the best versions of ourselves or the worst depending on which part they feed, which part they highlight and which part they nourish.
Defensiveness is just vulnerability in different clothing.
And not much will be left of us
After this has occurred.
Just an empty shell,
And another body to be burned
We use people that we think can help get us ahead. We become self-obsessed monsters and we don’t care who we hurt in the way as long as we’re satisfied.
There are days I wish I wasn’t made of so many painful things. Of secrets and heartache and tiredness and stories that make the people who have dared to stay and love me’s bones quake.
