Today I faced reality, and did something I never foreseen coming. I let truths escape my lips that I have denied for months, for years. And once those words, once buried deep in my heart, hidden deep in my mind, pummeled up my throat for the first time, they just kept brewing. Words I have never admitted, not all together, in one sitting.
They stalled slightly at the back of my throat while I built up the courage. They played tennis across my teeth, but eventually they slowly rolled off my tongue and through my lips. Every word, buried deep inside me came out.
And the tears rolled.
And then I sighed.
And then I made action steps.
And on my way home, this song came on my playlist.
And it couldn’t be more fitting. It gives me the strength and reassurance that I am making the right choice.
