It always comes back to me, and me = at least half the battle. People cannot help you if you cannot help yourself. And if you cannot help yourself, therein lies the problem. It’s a cycle. A vicious cycle that keeps on going. Until you say stop. That is if you are able to do so. Say stop. If you want your voice to be heard, to stand out in the millions. To matter. Not to be the centre of attention, but to actually deep down matter. To have someone ask “are you okay? What can I do to be there for you? ” . If you are always the strong, silent type. The one who just takes on the hurt and drama, who seemingly takes it on head first. Or so it would seem. Yet instead let’s it seep through like poison.
