Somewhere I Can Be Myself Again

February 4, 2019 by Violet Benson

I just want to be somewhere where I can be myself without feeling judged.

Where I can sit in silence and not be forced to put on a show to constantly entertain everyone around me.

Where I can be loved for my flaws as much as for my beauty.

Where I can be forgiven for my shortcomings and understood for my thoughts.

I just want to go somewhere where people genuinely care about me and not just pretend to as long as they need something from me.

Where people fight for me and aren’t going to abandon me the minute they get bored with me.

I want to wake up somewhere where I feel like I’m good enough.

Where I’ve got nothing left to prove.

I want to go back to a place where innocence lives, where there’s no heartbreak, no pain, no anger, and no disappointment.

Where I’m held so tightly until all my sadness goes away.

Somewhere I feel safe.

Somewhere I am loved.

Somewhere I can be myself again.

    I feel you. I was as bad as you describe in my 20s – constantly trying to impress everyone for the sake of my own wellbeing, constantly in show mode, feeling responsible for everyone to have a good time, fearful that someone may not like me; it got better with age, now I know a little better who Iam
