Hurt & Relieved

Sometimes you can want something and still know the better decision is to walk away. Maybe this is what growing up is all about — to honor your boundaries, your heart, and know when you are not being respected. When I was little, I wasn’t allowed to eat ice cream. I would sneak eating it any chance I wasn’t with my mom, and later I would get a bad stomach ache. I’d learn that even if you want something so badly, if it’s not meant for you, all you can do is learn to live without it. I don’t crave ice cream anymore, and I can’t wait for the day I feel the same about you.

I write to process, to heal, to move through life with a little bit of grace, to stop living in my head, to find power in vulnerability - thankfully with editing tools, unlike real life.
