I have always struggled to lie. Tap dancing around the truth never worked for me. So I told them I will live freely, carelessly, independently... I guess they got scared. So they threw me in a cage. It was beautiful. I was surrounded by these golden ties, it was comfortable. But they were just an illusion. I could not go on living for their honour. I wanted to escape.
So I did!
The ties snapped! But that is okay. Because I have trust in myself. Trust to build my own ties without needing to cage a single soul. I'll love unconditionally, selflessly because that's how I love myself.
Because I know what self-hatered feels like and I know how love heals.
And now; after what seems like an eternity. I see you and believe me when I say I trust you! Because finally I have been able forgive them; I no longer see them in you.
I see you!
I trust you because you're kind. Sometimes you will do hurtful things. But you are not your actions. They are not their actions either.
I am moving forward. Are you joining?
