I no longer need your attention, AT EASE
This is just a post to keep telling everyone to do you. It's your life, therefore your rules. You shouldn't feel guilty for not living upto someone else's expectations. I know what it's like to completely forget about yourself, running around after people who were never worth my time or effort. The amount of energy I used on people who eventually fell away, who in the end, I realised, were not who I thought they were. - See I used to put people up on pedestals, so I always had this sense of wonder to look up to people. It was never a good thing, because I never did that with myself. I always compared myself to others in ways you couldn't comprehend, even I couldn't at times. I couldn't stop myself until I saw my world getting smaller, crashing down on me, suffocating me. Only then did I start to wake up amongst the rubble and start putting my life back together. You know how I did that? I listened to myself, I stopped trying to please everyone and started to take care of me. Because at the end of the day if you don't start loving yourself how can you expect someone else to?
