I did want to be a better person. I did want to be brave and fierce and true. I did want to open my palms and expose the stories deep in the grooves. I did want to make the harder choice and the wiser move, the moving left to make it right. I did want to be a better person, all along.

I suppose I thought love was the way to do it.

  1. I’ve been going through a crazy time in a new relationship, learning boundaries and whatnot, and your recent posts have helped me see into my own thoughts more clearly.
    You’ve been helping me along in making my difficult decisions and I want to thank you. I’ve realized I don’t need anyone to help me be the person I want to be, and your post tonight has helped to justify my decision.

    • Hi Sara,

      Thanks so much for taking the time to tell me that; I am beyond glad that some of what I write resonates … part of the reason I started writing (to myself initially) was because I was desperately looking for similar experiences or outlooks and was coming up empty most of the time. You are so right that you don’t need anyone to help you be the person you want to be – though who we choose to be with definitely leaves an impression 😉

      Good luck with your decisions and be sure to let me know how you are going along the way x
