Recently, someone reached out for my hand in a friendship, when I was least
expecting it. It was much to my surprise mainly because we have had a rocky
relationship the past few years, due to a lack of communication between us
as well as her dating my ex and that being an all-time recipe for disaster.
This has brought a flood of past emotions and memories of a young, naive version of myself. A person I have fought for years to never become again. It is so easy to consume yourself in someone else and everything around you that you lose aspects of your identity; the things you used to love, passions and goals and dreams in a relationship. I finally feel I am at a point in my life where I can safely open up and look back on past regrets and mistakes and really take something useful away from it. I am a true believer of "you live & you learn".
I will never again be the girl to allow someone to be my priority while only being their option. I will never again allow my self respect and self worth to be stolen from me. I will never again allow someone to overshadow me, to be my voice, to control my thoughts/feelings/opinions. I will never again allow someone to change me into the person they want me to be, rather than accepting me for who I already am. I will never again settle for less than what I, now, know I am worth.
I am proud to look back and be able to be truly happy and comfortable in my own skin. It has not been an easy road, but it was a road that has made me the person I am today. Strong, beautiful, honest, independent, and most of all hopeful.
And that is something no one can ever take away from me again.
