I have been called childish at times and judged for indulging in what would otherwise be considered and classified as childish
But what you don’t know or see is that all day I suffocate that part of me for work, for my friends and prioritizing everyone else’s happiness.
At the end of the day my only selfish act is indulging that part of me
My childish part that by some miracle of God is still alive and well within
My inner child allows me to smile on the worst of days and is my guiding light
It allows me to shake off the wrong and betrayal of the world, setting myself aside to be there selflessly for others.
I didn’t get to formally meet or introduce myself to my inner child much less embrace it at the appropriate age.
This is what happens when kids are forced to think and act like adults in addition to a difficult life.
I couldn’t be a child growing up, it wasn’t safe….it’s something that you were punished for.
While as an adult one would think it worse, it’s a great comfort.
Shit happens and my inner child shines through being optimistic and full of love.
I wouldn’t trade it for the world, the adult in me if I had things my way would burn everything to the ground that belonged to the ones that hurt me.
We all have sides of us and coping mechanisms, if I were to shed mine…..the light within would be snuffed out; the darkness will take over and I will no longer recognized the person I know myself to be and love
My true nature, is a cold, uncaring, unfeeling, self centered, calculating asshole.
No matter what this world throws at me I cannot let it change me into what it wants me to be, I have to stand firm in who I am and who I want to be.
You can never understand, and to be honest I don’t blame you there are things I have yet to understand.
I know how things will turn out and yet time and time again I stick with it thinking my intuition is wrong.
You’ll see me and cast your judgements on me and act accordingly.
Should you ever find yourself reading this, I want you to know at the end of the day I take care of not only my responsibilities, but those around me. Even knowing how things played out with us in advance, I want you to know despite the betrayal and lies, I enjoyed our time together. The love I have for you is very real, and I hope your alright. You’ve had it hard and you’ve made difficult decisions because of those your loyal to but it comes a time when you need to be loyal to yourself. I can’t be mad be I understand all too well, it’s a blessing and a curse but I wouldn’t change it.
I sincerely hope you read this, my things can and will be replaced but you only get one life and even if reincarnations are real, you only get this life with this consciousness; don’t waste it on those who don’t value or appreciate you.
