I sacrifice so much of myself to make sure others can reach their full potential.
Sometimes, I feel so used.
The lack of appreciation shreds at my kindness. I want to scream at the people who take advantage of me.
I want to scream at myself though. For letting them.
I don’t want to be talked at, but with. I don’t want to live within the past, constantly over analyzing it.
I don’t want to be around people who are submerged in negativity. I don’t want to be around people who can’t help themselves. As harsh as that may sound.
I am done catering to everyone’s needs. I am done letting people dictate me. I am done with people saying they love “me”.
I’m ready to let myself be free in the ways that I want to be.
