Sometimes I just want a hug. I just want someone to hug me so tight, and just let me know that everything is okay. Just let me know that everything is okay, that it is okay to be anxious, that it is okay to be unsure. I don’t want to talk about it all the time. Sometimes I just want to sit in the silence, just sit with a good friend in the silence of it all. Just squeeze my hand or pat my shoulder, and just let me know that you are there, that you see me and my pain, that I am not invisible. I don’t always want to talk about everything; sometimes I just want to sit with a friend in the quiet. Look into my eyes, let me know that I’m not alone.
Sometimes I just want someone to say that its normal to feel this way. I need validation, reassurance, comfort. Don’t tell me what to do, just let me know that I’m not crazy or alone.
Sometimes I just want a pat on the back, some recognition for my work. I work on myself so often, but it seems as though nobody sees how hard I try, nobody sees any difference.
Sometimes I just want a space to cry, cry without explaining why. Just to release emotions, without justifying myself.
Sometimes I just need reminders. Reminders that I matter. Reminders that it was not my fault. Reminders that I’m a good person. Reminders of how much love I have to give and how much love I have in my life. Reminders that I should keep holding on, riding out the storm, no matter how intense. Reminders not to give up hope.
Some days I just want to talk, without having to answer so many questions, talk just to be heard and understood. Other days I just want to stay quiet.
Sometimes I just want to stay in bed all day, curled up with my dog, in the dark, with no interruptions.
S0metimes I need a reminder that your opinion of me will never change, no matter what I do, or what I have been through, that I am still a good person.
