‘No’ might make them angry but it will make you free. -if no one has ever told you, your freedom is more important than their anger. Nayyirah Waheed
Dear “Folks Who Have Hurt Me”,
l will not tread quietly around your feelings while you walk on mine.
I will not allow you to take credit for my successes while counting on my failure.
I will not let you minimize my pain while clearing your conscience.
I will not ‘stand strong’ so you can forget about all the times you ignored me while I was weak.
I will no longer utter the phrase ‘you did your best’ when I know it was your worst.
I will not suck it up, I will not let it go, and I sure AS HELL won’t take it anymore.
I won’t pretend, I won’t pretend, I won’t pretend….
…I’m sick of that shit.
You are now on notice.
