I’m angry with you, but I have a feeling you’re here for a reason. Is it to protect me? Is it to teach me something the world cannot? Whatever your reason is, my gut is to reject you, but I know that I should probably embrace you. Why? Because I don’t want to run. I want to take ownership, I want to rise up, and I want to accept you so that you may leave when the time is right.
However, I know that time will never come if I don’t make the right choices. So while you’re here, just know my actions will be a little different. I won’t let you distract me from the truth, and I’m going to keep my head this time. I know who I am, where I’m going, and where I’ve been. I’ll listen to what you have to say, but you won’t be taking up too much of my time.
