Life in My Words
By: Monique K. Rose
I don’t feel safe around people. I know a majority will hurt me. Some will be envious or judgmental. Others will be liars and manipulators. A few may befriend me only to gain something then walk away. I feel stuck and still as I spectate who awaits love and understanding like me.
I’m waiting for someone who sees me, respects me and appreciates me.
I'm waiting for someone to love, respect, and honor.
When we encounter, we will love each other
I can’t love someone that does not respect me. I can’t love someone that does not value me. I should not stay with someone that intentionally hurts me. I should not be with someone who wants to break me down. I should not be with someone who is incapable of loving me. I should stay away from people that speak negatively about me. I should avoid opening up to people I do not know. I should not rely on people that I can’t trust. I should not trust someone right away. I need to pay attention to how a person makes me feel and their attitude towards me. I should demand respect where it is not given. I must block out what does not serve me.
I need to part ways before I get in deep enough to battle anxiety separation. Who’s with someone happily and free?
It’s okay for a woman to choose a path of her own instead of the one expected of her...
I can honestly say as I approach chapter 30, that I feel fulfilled. The things that I truly desired and prayed to accomplish, experience, and learn has come to past in chapter 20s.
