Losing My Grip

Down in the dumps again
Guess my high waves have abated now.
It’s so disturbing after so long finally I thought I’ve got a grip on my life. But it just takes a few hours and some negative thought indulgence, and there I go again.
Back to my old self.
The self I’ve always known that I’m comfortable with.

I’m so torn between who I was and who I’m becoming
I need my old self to fade away.
It has served its purpose.
Time for my new self has arrived.

I’m waiting for my cocoon to fall away
So I can spread my wings and fly.


Learning to love myself for the first time... ❤️ Cutting all ties that keep me where I am.. Learning to fly, to soar and be free.

Very deep. We always strive to be better and sometimes we fall back to our old self but each step forward is to be celebrated and each step back is another lesson that we learn from. Our old self is something is a reminder of who we were and every step journeying towards our new self is an encouragement to keep going! Thanks for sharing.

You sound so alone. That happens when writing. I hope you have enough love in your life to brighten your wings.

    There’s love but there’s a lack of understanding.
    But in this community there are people like you who appreciate and that’s really helping a lot. All I can say is I wish I’d come here sooner.
    And thanks
