I want to feel like I’m home in your arms.
I want to feel like I’m in peace in the crook of your neck.
I want to feel like I’m safe leaning on the warmth of your back.
I want to feel like I’m where I should be, with you.
"Never be bullied into silence. Never allow yourself to be made a victim. Accept no one’s definition of your life, but define yourself."-Harvey Fierstein (via observando)
I had a conversation with myself today. I figured that it could work because the show, even though probably exaggerated, showed me that if we just really believed in ourselves, it would have a huge effect.
And so I had a conversation with myself today, right after I got out of class. There’s a lot of emphasis in group work and group discussion. You’d think that writing was an individual thing, but the process is made up of a lot of sharing and explaining with others. And though I understand its benefits and importance of exchanging ideas and learning amongst our peers, I still have anxiety.
I had a conversation with myself today, not just because I have anxiety with writing and with having my papers be read, but because overall, I have anxiety interacting with others. Sometimes my voice just comes out naturally. I don’t think too much about it and I just do it. But often times, it takes much longer to respond back.
I had a conversation with myself today after I got out of class. I stepped out of the building and I felt good, but only for a while. I started getting anxious and insecure really fast. I don’t know where this fear comes from, but it breaks me down sometimes….
I had a conversation with myself today to stop listening to the whispering voices trying to get me to feel closed up and trapped. I told myself that it really doesn’t matter. That my self-worth is not up to anybody but mine.To realize the importance of how I think of myself and not of how others may think of me. It’s something that I tend to forget, but come back to and learn over and over again.
