Time and time again I've found myself seeking relief in all the wrong places.
If it be in a drug induced haze to the arms of men that don't honestly care about me.
I'm sick of searching for a safe haven.
I've looked everywhere and still I've found nothing.
Nothing, but lies and betrayal.
The only people that remotely help are my family and my true friends.
Now here is my revelation.
I don't need to go looking for a savior for there isn't really one out there.
Only I can save myself from the hard times.
Sure other's can be there for support, but the only one who can honestly make me feel any better...is ME!
I can't count on others to make me feel right.
I have to be my own salvation.
Only I can make things right.
So here I am... stopping the drugs...stopping the selfharm...stopping the need for men who don't really give a shit.
I'm done with it all.
Only I can save myself from my life.
I like this. It's a bit dark, sure, but it has a lot of truth to it. People have to realize that they need to stop relying on other people to do things for them. They need to get their head in the game, smile, and help themselves. Thank you for sharing. It's a good thing to know that other people realize the value of self worth and that only they can truly change themselves. Great job!
Yes indeed! You said it all. One thing for sure you came to realize only you can save you. Yes, their may be all types of help (programs) it won't do any good unless you were/are willing to change. I'm glad you took charge of your life. This write is your testimony and I wish you the best . Take care and take it one day at a time.
