I think one of my biggest flaws is my stubbornness. It gets in the way of a lot of things. It makes things more difficult for me. And even though I clearly see how it negatively affects me, I am too stubborn to change my stubbornness.
You can only hide behind a clean mask for so long before it gets dirtied.
It doesn’t make me feel popular or special.
It makes me feel like someone is listening or really understands what I’m saying.
Knowing what I know and not being allowed to say that I know it is more painful that not knowing it at all.
It’s not about hearing “thank you”. It’s not about the praise. It’s not about the credit.
It’s about the smile that I see on someone’s face, the smile that makes all the bad things in my life seems so unimportant, the smile that makes all their bad things go away, even if for just a moment.
Though you may forgive my trespassing, I may not.
