you left me alone for too long.
you gave me way too much time to think.
you made me realize that i don’t need you. you made me realize that i could make it through the roughest parts of it and survive without you. you made me realize this lonely journey has become one of the most important parts of my existence so far.
when i had nothing, when i had no one, i really remembered what i was capable of.
i tried to change you to fit into my plans. even worse, i tried to change me to fit in with your plans. and when none of this was working, i was mad and i began to question myself. everything about myself.
but then you left me alone for too long
and now i am so rock solid, you will never shake me again.
“the problem is sometimes we misplace that passion. we are passionate about people and things that don’t deserve such a high level of commitment.” -john w. gray
