I can compartmentalize
I just need to focus; breathe deeply,
I have strength of focus, clarity of vision, determination. I am a force of nature. I exude confidence. My stride is steady, my gaze is unrelenting. I stand firm in my convictions and am immovable.
I am uncertain. Plenty of options lay in front of me, but which path to take? Which is the right path for me? What should I focus on? How will I know when I’ve found my purpose? I’m terrified to try because I know that success isn’t guaranteed, so I don’t move. I’m going to curl up in a little ball and wait it out. Maybe this will pass.
I am elated. The world is mine to explore to learn from. I relish the opportunity to grow and become the best version of myself. I am an amazing, kind, compassionate person. I choose to be happy because this way no one can take it from me.
I am here for you. I want to listen, to understand. I feel for you, and I’m sorry. I know where you’re coming from and if I don’t I’m still here. It’s going to be ok. You’re going to be ok. Don’t worry, I’m here for you. Always.
I am alone. No one knows the real me. Not the one deep down. Not worthless, pointless, insignificant me. There’s nothing special about me. I’m just a below average person and I’m alone. Always and Forever.
…I can compartmentalize…
I am the sum of my parts. I am like an algebraic equation with constantly changing variables. Every day, every choice, every situation feeds a part of me. I am alone, but I am fierce because I am compassionate. Even when I’m unsure of my purpose, I chose to be happy because I’m worth it. Everyone is. Even if we forget.
We shouldn’t compartmentalize.
