Who? Me?


“When someone tells you who they are, believe them the first time.” Maya Angelou

I get it.

Well, maybe I always got it, but I didn’t translate it to my own life.

I was looking for that person who did me dirt.  I was watching for the mean one, the stingy one, the cruel one… I wasn’t looking for my co-dependency.  I wasn’t looking for the way I excuse those I love and make it my fault.

I wasn’t even looking for the way I live with things until they become normal.  Or how I delay or avoid taking care of myself in order not to hurt the person who is hurting me.


I’m walking taller now.  This realization has touched me profoundly.  My self-worth is showing as I walk through my day.

I guess this is what “aha” means.  I am changed in a moment.  I will never be the same.
