For so long I have struggled with the highest of highs and the lowest of lows.
I wanted to be brave and do things on my own.
I didn’t want to be deemed as weak so for more than half my life I used my writing as the only form of therapy .
You see, my writings wouldn’t turn around and tell my secrets.
They wouldn’t turn on me and suddenly stop being my friend.
My words would never betray me and I thought I needed nothing else.
Time has passed. I have grown older and though my writings are still the biggest part of my healing, I accept the fact that I also need much more.
It’s much more difficult to stay on top of things.
I am not just wanting to live the best life possible for me, but I want to be the best partner and friend.
I want those around me to feel my light, my love, my joy and share in my laughter.
I no longer wish to be controlled by my moods, guilt or shame. I no longer want to feel scared, anxious and angry , not understanding or being able to express what I am going through.
I want to know and understand who I am.
I want those around me to be happy in my presence.
I have gotten so much love and support over the past few years even when I haven’t given my best.
I want those demons to flee and no longer live in my head.
I want to find release and freedom.
I don’t want to lie awake with thoughts of suicide plaguing my mind.
So many nights I am scared that I won’t make it till morning and it’s a battle because I have to think of my loved ones and how this would affect them. Most of the time that’s the only thing keeping me from going over the edge.
I don’t want to be scared because I can’t control my moods.
I want to be the light and live in the light.
So today , I choose to start over and to accept the help that I need at this time.
I need it for my sanity. I need it so that my days won’t end prematurely.
I want to live for as long as I was intended to.
I choose to live not just exist.
Today I choose to let everything that has made me weak, be my strength and building block.
Today I start over because my life matter to me and those around me.
Love & Light
