What an epic time to have a realization — it’s pouring out and gloomy and sets the mood for something depressing. Or not.
I guess it has finally dawned on me to let go. To really just loosen my grip on chasing something and forcing on something that no longer deserves my breath and time. It has been draining; having this thought in my head for a few months now. And to finally accept the whole situation, to understand that everything will just go on fine without me, that there are others who deserve me who makes me feel like i’m worth it in their lives and who understands me entirely – down to my need for superficial, bimbotic talk and my love affair with makeup, and not-your-average things that interest me – not just for the surface me I so comfortably present and allow others to perceive me based on it. I feel almost lighter now. It will take some getting used to but I guess it won’t affect me as much as it did before. After all, only a handful of people are meant to stay with you forever.
Respect yourself enough to walk away from anything that no longer serves you, grows you, or makes you happy. — Robert Tew
