I remember wanting to be an adult to spoil my mom with beautiful gifts. She deserved the world. I would go outside and pick flowers. Unfortunately, she passed away, and I never got the opportunity. I miss her so much. As I get older, Mother’s Day is indeed a double-edged sword. It’s a reminder that she’s gone and that my dream of having a family is out of reach. Twenty-eight isn’t old, but if you had to grow up quickly like I did, you’d understand. Ever since I was a girl, I wanted to be a mother.

As the year ends, I’ve decided it’s time to make some profound changes.
As the year ends, I’ve decided it’s time to make some profound changes. I’ll see how long this outlook lasts. By some fault of my own, I am a people pleaser. I just want to make up for all the times I’ve disappointed or hurt the people I love. I am convinced that I deserve pain and suffering. Broken souls, I try to fix. Always wanting from unwilling people. Continuously falling for sweet nothings in my ear. Yes, I am delusional beyond repair.
I arrive at my apartment. I am exhausted from another work day. It’s the holidays; it’s expected. The company that I work for got acquired by a more prominent company. It’s overwhelming and confusing. I muster the energy to smile and laugh because this doesn’t just affect me. I always…
Everyone tells me I should be grateful for the things I have, which makes me feel like absolute scum. I am well aware that I have an excellent relationship with my sister. I have a fantastic select group of friends. My soulmate is all wrapped up in the cutest, furriest cat. I continue to climb the ladder at work no matter how many times I jump off it. I went from being homeless to having my place. So why not be happy? Why do I always want more? You’re young, have fun, and stop being so morbid. You’re always sad and angry; you’re so emotionally draining and dramatic. You’re so overly excited; grow up. No matter what, I’m just a contradiction.
