Sometimes we have to walk away from all we’ve known to find ourselves. It’s taken a long time for me to find me, and I can’t allow someone or something to come in and make me lose myself again or pull me back into an idea or situation I’ve found the courage to leave. People and situations come in and out of our lives because we are ever changing, growing, and discovering.
I’m not the same person I was six months ago, or a year ago, or six years ago. There was a time I needed something different, because I was different. I’m a new person now, and my needs have changed. If we haven’t changed together, then I must leave you behind. I can’t turn around and go back, that person doesn’t exist anymore. It doesn’t mean I didn’t love, need, appreciate or respect what we had together; it’s just not what I need any more. Whether it’s a marriage, a close friend, a lover, a career, a culture, a way of thinking, a passion, or a place …I have to be true to me or I’m no good for anyone… especially me. I’ve got to love me or I have NOTHING for anyone else.
Till next time,~T.L. Gray
