I am free.
But its important to be very true to myself. Its exausting to pretend to be happy when you feel so torn up inside. Its important to go to people to build relationships with them, bot because you need tem. Thanks Ruby for reminding me of that.
There are so many things to be happy about. The best thing I can do for the world is to be the best version of myself. Becoming absorbed in people around you just limits the scope of what you are capable of.
I am beginning a new chapter in my life of independence, self exploration, and eventually self actualization.
