Goodbye, you three
As I release the last of the year that was 2011, I also cast these three stories into the wind:
1) Someone else's opinion is always more important than my own instinct or desire.
2) By eating when I am hungry I am bad, greedy, disobedient, fat, unloveable.
3) Saying what is deepest in my heart would hurt, upset or anger someone, and that would be the worst thing in the world.
Goodbye, my friends. We travelled closely and I know you only wanted to protect me. There seemed to be so many things to be afraid of.
So thank you.
But I am beginning to see that I really don't need you any more.
Go. Don't look back.
I don't need permission.
I don't need controlling.
I don't need protecting.
I am OK.
