Sometimes it feels like I am always justifying myself…

for the daughter I am,
for the people I loved,
for the hurt snd pain I felt,
for the choices I’ve made,
and the ones I should have but did not;
for the values I cherish,
for the boundaries I set and keep setting,
for the friends I do not miss
and the ones I do;
for the things I do not choose to take responsibility for,
as well as for the ones I do;
for the fact I do not like to ask for help,
for my values and dreams,
for standing alone,
for protecting myself,
for being me.

Huh. Now that I have seen that,
I’d like to stop.

And just be me.
