Most of the time I don’t consider myself very strong. I find that I doubt myself. Just going along saying yes, of course, why not, even when I don’t want to. Mainly because I feel obligated out of years of friendship. Yesterday I said no. Yesterday I said my feelings were hurt.
Seasons have changed, life has changed, and we have grown. Our children aren’t friends as much as we both would love to say that they are. We care for one another, and will forever love one another. Neither one of us wants to hurt the other, but in doing that have caused more hurt it seems.
Hurt. Growth. Strength. I am hurt. I have grown. I have strength. I have changed.
