Like waves crashing on the shore, my emotional strength was worn away, worn away, worn away.  And so I did something I never do.  I felt something I never feel.  I exhaled in a way I never allow myself.  I cried.

This truth is proving harder and harder to ignore.  I type, I talk, I live, I feel.  I never say.  A pillar of strength, self assured and confident; tonight I crumbled.  I don’t want to regret, I can’t say my life choices are mistakes.

Drastic changes require drastic measures.  I need to make that leap, but I’m not ready to jump.
