Catch My Breath

Sometimes good intentions
don't come across so well
Get me analyzing everything
that ain't worth thinkin' 'bout
Just 'cause I ain't lived through 
the same hand that was dealt to you 
doesn't make me any less, or make any more of you
I wouldn't trade my best day 
so you could validate 
all your fears

It's been a few trying days. I lost someone who meant a lot to me, but I think it's for the best. I realized that if I take this person back, it'll just be stagnate. It's the same story every time, and it's taken me a while to realize this, but I can't just stay stagnate.

This isn't a post to bash the person, I would never do that publicly to someone. Not someone who means so much to me. But these past few weeks since I came home have been nothing like I expected.

It was supposed to be a time to read and write. To relax.

Instead, I'm struggling to catch my breath. Between the drama and the fighting, the car trips to visit family members I haven't seen in four years, and all the Christmas shopping, I feel like I'm standing on one last toe.

I realized last night, part of the reason I had to let this person go was because I was afraid. My emotions always seem to run high around this person, and I'm afraid to break again. I struggle to keep strong and not crack on a regular basis. I realized if I stayed friends with this person, a breakdown was the next logical step.

I love this person, a part of me always will, but it's time to change and catch my breath.

Sometimes that's for the best. It sucks, but sometimes some friendships don't stand the test of time and that's okay. I know there are lots of people whom I was close to at some point in my past, but as I grew and evolved into adulthood the relationship didn't mature with it. I'm thankful for the good times I had with those people, but I'm thankful that I was able to move on as well.
