I want to feel it. The sensation of standing on my own two feet. Knowing that there are people willing to be there, but I can handle things on my own. Accepting that I have love around me, but keeping my heart self-sufficient. I need this feeling. I absolutely crave it. Being empowered over my own life. Knowing that I am in control of my own feelings. Understanding that I am not so easily broken. Giving no one the power to hurt me again. I have to feel what it’s like, just to be myself.
