10 years ago I was a fly caught in a web,
A prison of my own doing.
I used to blame others. I used to believe I was doing what was right. I used to believe I didn’t have a choice.
But the realization has steadily dawned on me, that all these traps, all these set backs, the stifling weight of fear and helplessness, was in my control all along.
I hold the power of my autonomy. I don’t need permission. I don’t need approval. I don’t need someone to take care of me.
I am enough.
I am set free.
