Opening

Opening up to the possibility that there is good in me,

Maybe it wasn’t all my fault,

Opening up to the possibility that I am worthy of happiness,

Maybe I don’t set the bar too high,

Opening up to the feelings which flood me,

Maybe I am not overdramatic

Opening up to the fact that maybe coming back to me can only be a good thing,

Maybe I am not selfish,

Opening up to the fact that perhaps I can verbalize what I need,

Maybe I am not bossy.

Opening up to the fact that I am me.

Maybe there is nothing wrong with that.
