Daily Prompt: Core
I’m damaged and that’s okay.
Every hurtful word, every harsh action taken against me; I’ve taken it all in and pushed it down. It sits at my core and I can’t let it go. No, I don’t want to let it go. I like the fact that it’s there and I can pull it out whenever I feel the need. When I feel like being angry, I reach down and grab a memory that will allow me to justify my anger. When I want to be sad, I can reflect on a moment from the past that totally broke my heart. And when I feel like I’m a nobody and I don’t matter, the bitter words from the past echo in my ears; validating my perception.
But, who wants to feel like being angry? Who wants to be sad? Who feels like a nobody and that they don’t matter?
Me. Because I’m damaged and that’s okay.
