    I try to make everyone else happy,

    that's just the way I'm built, but I need to focus more on me now, why do I feel guilty and selfish when I do things for myself?

    As I get older I'm learning more

    and more to be myself.... I don't only live to please others, to take care of others, to make everyone else happy....Sometimes I have to be a little selfish...to think of ME first..... After all, this journey is mine.... And the clock is ticking

    I am so tired. Tired of caring about everything

    and nothing. Walking this line of doing the right thing but still being true to myself. Tired of holding the weight of the world and guilt when I let it go. I feel like I am walking this tightrope and it's exhausting.

    There are things we do not want to happen

    but have to accept, things we do not want to know but have to learn, and people we can not live without but have to let go.

    Letting go takes Love.

    To let go does not mean to stop caring, it means I can not do it for someone else. To let go is not to cut myself off, it is the realization that I can not control another. To let go is not to enable, but allow learning from natural consequences. To let go is to admit...
