That’s how I like to see myself. Never afraid, always in control of things. Never needing to lean on anyone; in fact, being the one that everyone can lean on.
But some days, the weight of the world is the weight of my tee shirt; worn well & lightly, but it can’t be taken off for fear of what you might see.
I hate having moments of weakness where I have to show that I’m afraid so I don’t go crazy. Even more, I hate when my fears are about things I shouldn’t be worried about. Things I can’t control… things that can be solved.
I’m only human after all… I hate that.
