On being my own best friend.

Sometimes it's nice to be your own best friend.

I go for walks alone, I take myself for dinner, I see a movie, I go to shows.

I hug myself to sleep, I hold my own hand and brush the hair out of my face.

I've gotten really good at doing things alone.

I keep all my own secrets quite well.

I find it's harder on the days where I'm noticing a lot of people in pairs, sharing moments together.

It's harder when I have a story to tell & no one to tell it to.

Or when I'm tired of picking myself off the ground.

This is when I find it hard to breathe. When I find it hard to cope. When I find it hard to be my own best friend.
