to change

I used to want to change

I didn’t like myself

didn’t want to be myself

as I learned that people don’t change

can’t change

shouldn’t change

I got angry

I took it out on the people I cared about

they thought I hated them

and didn’t see how much I hated myself

But I saw how much they loved me and decided

they deserved better, and I deserved better

so I tried to make friends with myself

learned how to like myself

and for the first time in my life

I didn’t want to change

I wanted to grow

  1. Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site covers a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen to be interested feel free to send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Awesome blog by the way!
