You asked her to go with us to meet your parents. You were going to pay for her when we couldn't even make rent. I slept for hours while you played xbox with her and all I did was cry and pretend like I didn't mind that my boy friend was falling in love with my best friend.
I know I shouldn't be. But knowing that their is another girl that's making you smile besides me. Makes my heart break into so many pieces. Because I would do anything to light up your world the way you light up mine. But the sad thing is I'll never tell you my feelings because.... You aren't mine. But at the end of the day that's all I want to be.
...I am worthwhile. Not because other people think I am, but because I exist, and therefore I matter... And with or without anyone's permission or approval, I will continue to be who I am and speak my truth... I refuse to shrink. I choose to take up space. I choose to honor my feelings. I choose to give myself permission to get my needs met.
