Sometimes we forget who we really are when others tell you what they think you are. They’re wrong.
Sometimes we listen to others when we shouldn’t, especially ones who know they are trying to hurt you. Why? Because they’re the vulnerable ones.
Sometimes we try to understand why people do the things they do. Most of the time even they don’t realise what they’re doing is irrational. To them, it’s normal. But to you, it hurts.
Sometimes we automatically see fault in ourselves when someone mistreats us. Was it something I did? Did I do this? What if it’s something to do with me? No. It’s not you.
Sometimes people don’t understand you, because they haven’t been there themselves. They haven’t been mistreated. They haven’t been misunderstood.
Sometimes we try to fight a battle we know in our hearts we can’t win. But we try anyway.
Sometimes we get tired of the disappointment, and want to bail out.
But we don’t.
Sometimes, you forget how strong you are. You forget you have wings to fly, they are nobody else’s but yours. Look how many times you’ve picked yourself up. Look how many times you’ve walked away and never looked back.
Be proud of who you are, how far you’ve come, how far you’ve got to go.
