And so, she chose love
She was done…
Done with protecting you from pain.
Done with all the crap thrown at her.
Done with being lied to.
Done with being ignored in her pleas for connection and appreciation.
Done fixing herself, untill she is good enough.
Done with the lack of stability in her world.
Done with warning you for what is about to come
Done with protecting people from trauma.
Done with naming the unspoken.
Done with empathizing with people.
Done fighting, which given her past was the last thing she ever wanted in the first place.
Done with opening her heart, with so little being returned.
And so, she chose love.
Because love can hold truth, no matter how much it hurts.
