There have been a lot of changes in my life over this last year
I tried on a lot of different "looks"
And I have learned a couple of things
1) I can only be ME -- the best me I can be -- I can't be you -- or you -- or you.
2) If someone won't acknowledge a relationship with me -- then I am not the person for them -- I don't want someone in my life who acts as though they are embarrassed of me. I deserve so much better than that !!
3) That setting boundaries is hard work -- keeping those boundaries firmly in place is even harder work -- and involves some risk -- but boundaries will keep me "ME" and I know now that is very important.
4) I don't need to be "rescued" -- I am a responsible adult and as such will make my own choices -- some times I might need some help -- an ear to listen -- a shoulder to lean on -- maybe even some advise -- but I do not need rescuing
I have made some mistakes over this past year -- and I "fucking own them" -- and learned from them ......... and am stronger for them
