SUNDAY 28 APRIL 2013
It’s too easy to get caught up.
It happened to me.
It’s a trap.
Why leave your bed
when your loneliness is there to keep you company?
Eat a lot, don’t eat at all.
Bathe in the dissatisfaction,
lie to yourself, “it’s never going to get better”.
Shut out the voices
of everyone you need to listen to.
I found my way out of the trap,
and I’m still finding my way.
But I’m always seeing other people
slip into it just like I did.
What can I do?
You can’t save everyone from themselves,
and we all need to learn our own lessons.
What I know is this:
- I can look at my friends and family
and think to myself “this is all I need”.
- I can stare into the mirror,
at my chubby body and my plain features
and I can still love myself.
- I figured out how to make things worthwhile
when I thought they never could be
and I feel sorry for anyone who can’t see things
the way I do.
