Leaving loneliness 

I am taking back my life

I’ve become so accustomed to giving up my power to other people

I’m so used to worrying about other’s needs before my own

I’m used to working so hard to please the other person, to give them what they need

Something deep down inside me telling me that this is what I have to do to be loved

That what I do is love

But being that way doesn’t allow me to love myself

It diminishes my worth

Because I am so much more than that

I’m more than what I can give to others

So I’m looking for someone who can see that

Someone who doesn’t need anything from me

I’m looking for someone who appreciates my gifts, not because they benefit from them but because they see the value of them

I’m looking for someone who gets me

Someone willing to put time and effort into knowing me

And I’m willing to wait for that

In the meantime, I’m starting over

I’m reintroducing myself to myself

Working on how I perceive me so that I can find someone worthy enough of who I am

Someone worthy of my time, my attention, of my love

This is how I will leave my loneliness.
