At the beginning of he week I was honestly scared and sad for what would happen when I cut the negativity out of my life. It had become so rooted in my own life that it felt like a clutch to my own normality. There a lot of racing thoughts. What would I do now? What will I tell people? What will happen to me if something bigger happens? I can confidently say that I have been supported in ways I never felt imaginable. My whole life I was afraid of saying that I was unhappy or being ridiculed for thinking so negatively. Growing up in a small primarily white town it was only thought to love thy neighbor and your family no matter what. I have come to learn this week that if this is what I feared most in life, then I'll be just fine. It is okay not to like people if they are harming you emotionally or physically. I am my own before I am anyone else's therefore I deserve to live my own humble life. I spent so many years waking up hiding secrets and trying to save others before saving myself. As the lies continue to unfold in the coming week and probably the rest of my life, I stand confident knowing I did the right thing. It has been such a relief to have a sense of freedom. I can not longer support people who do not want to support themselves first. I am truly happy that I am now allowed to express myself, curate my own relationships, and bring my support to hose who want and need me in their life.
