Through all the calamity I think I finally found the space and time to sit down and just be fully honest with myself and my circumstances. While there is a lot stress in my life I can't currently change or that are occurrences completely out of my control, there a still a good number of stressful situations that I can simply walk out on.
I am tired of the migraines that make my mind feel like it is going to split, I am tired of the sleepless nights and drinking myself to sleep, I am tired of forcing myself to take care of other people and I am tired of not living my life to the fullest.
At 22 I have nothing to show for the progress I've made in my life of meaning that doesn't have a painful memory or possess positive validating worth.
I am not everyone's toy or therapist or prince on a white stallion or doormat! I refuse to let anyone take any more of my energy making me upset for the way they treat me, including myself. I want more and I deserve better.
