Saying no
It is never easy but
understand that it’s OK
to say that dreaded word
That’s a lesson I’m still learning.

I’m always quick to say yes to everything
And then end up second-guessing
after caving in to the pressure
that comes with pleasing others
I do what I think is expected of me

Stress Is Painful

Stress is messy; it’s painful. It kills
anyone who stands in its way.
You included. It’s okay for you
to walk away from anything or anyone
who threatens your mental health. Your life
matters too. People don’t have to agree
with your decisions for it to be right.

Narcissist

It’s all about them and what they want
these people will lie and play the victim 24/7
it’s all about what you can do for them
They’re never satisfied no matter how many
times you’ve bent over backward
to lend a helping hand; they’ll cuss you out
in a heartbeat and tell you
you’ve done nothing for them.

You Are Not Alone

I write about my experiences; the good
comes with the bad; it’s not all ice cream
and cake as social media likes to paint
the picture; real life is packed with emotions
and challenges; it takes a sound mind
not to jump over the ledge. People need
to know they are not alone, so I share
my experiences with courage.
