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.
