If I stayed

If I stayed I would be proving myself to others,
I had to leave to prove myself to myself. 
If I Stayed I would love myself less,
I had to leave to love myself again. 
If I Stayed I would allow you to make me feel worthless,
I had to leave to see my value. 
If I stayed I would lose myself.
I had to leave to find me.
If I stayed I would be always tired,
I had to leave to become alive.
If I stayed I would watch you hurting me more,
I had to leave to heal.
If I stayed I would suffocate, 
I had to leave to breathe. 

I didn't leave because I stopped loving you, 
I left because I had to love me too.

It Ends with us

I have absolutely loved this quick easy read. This book needs to be discussed thoroughly, but not in a review. Not ruining the experience for someone else. This is one that you’ll want to share with your friends, your sister and maybe even your mother.

“People spend so much time wondering why the women don’t leave their abusive marriage. Where are all the people who wonder why the men are even abusive ?”

“Imagine all the people you meet in your life.. there are so many. They come in like waves, trickling in and out with the tide. Some waves are much bigger and make more of an impact than others.”

It Ends With Us

I write this to tell You ..

.. I write this to tell you, that all is well. Stop worrying, stop thinking too much. Start living and feeling fully this beauty that life is now. Look around you and find joy. Then stay in that joy as long as you can. Hear the birds and find the pleasure in their song. Then stay in that pleasurable feeling. See the beauty in everyone you meet. Then stay in that brilliance. Feel the energy of earth and universe. Smell the unique scent of the nature. Taste the freedom of your spirit and dreams. Touch others with light and love.

Wonder

Why does he do that ? 
Why is he angry ? 
Why does he twists things into their opposites?
Why did he say that? 
Why does he feel superior to everyone? 
Why he confuses love with abuse? 
Why is he manipulative?
Why does he enjoy conflict so much? 
Why does he blame me, for what he does? 
Why is he telling people lies? 
Why having a good public image is all he cares for? 
Why control and power is all he fights for ? 
Why everyone else thinks he is Wonderful? 
Deep down in his heart does he know, Why? 

I Wonder .. 
How many times have I asked myself, again and again, I wonder .. 
then I close my eyes and let go, because I know I will never know.

In Response to Daily prompt 

Uncompromising

He Challenged my core beliefs .. 
And suddenly I knew .. it was time to stop compromising .. 
It was time I come to terms with the values 
that I actually believe in my heart.

In response to Daily prompt

Messy

In response to today’s one-word prompt.

Seemed so beautiful. 
I believed you won't hurt me. 
I shared my secret, my deepest truth, I trusted you. 
Only to come to find myself in a battle 

Me Vs You 

I wanted it to be real 
you wanted me to kneel.
To fit you. 
To align with your idea 
of who 
you wanted me to be too
Seem so beautiful. 
Now you blame me 
for your misunderstanding 
of who I am
as Me.
