i’m tired of needing to be afraid of people. tired of having to build up a wall around myself to make sure i’m safe. shouldn’t we as people love each other? shouldn’t it be safe to be completely open and vulnerable? to be truly your self. i wish we lived in a culture where mistakes were opportunities for growth. where you could live and learn without worrying that at your first misstep, you’d be set upon, beaten and broken. why is it normal to take advantage? what happened to love?
our strength is not for hurting.
