I sought comfort in the arms of strangers and suddenly became a stranger to myself.
Be careful how much of yourself you give. All my life I have prioritized others instead of myself every time. Be it money, time, help, giving, and love. I love humanity more than myself, and more than often...I have ignored the pain of being used or taken advantage of. I hate admitting to myself that I need to take care of myself too, just because it feels selfish. But after helping so many, there came a point where I looked around and asked myself, "Who am I?"
Helping others... But I lost a lot of energy and used my years building other people instead of my own.
I really hope this doesn't sound arrogant. Because it's literally the last thing I care to be.
Allow me to dive into your mind, If I fail to **** the sharks, I'll learn how to swim with them.
Based upon my relationship in which over three years now, we have both learned to better care and understand each other's "deep waters". It's been a joruney of tears, pain and lessons. But we are now engaged and have grown and learned so much now!
