If women catcalled men (X)

I made myself walk
On broken legs
Because I thought
That made me
Stronger.
But every step
Was a little bit harder.
And with every step,
Another crack in
The bone.

Broken things
Need time
To heal
And I was always
Impatient.

After 6+ months of living with my parents - wow[!!!] - I have finally found a place for me and my son! We move next week!

If you feel lost, disappointed, hesitant, or weak, return to yourself, to who you are, here and now and when you get there, you will discover yourself, like a lotus flower in full bloom, even in a muddy pond, beautiful and strong.
Note to self: every time you were convinced you couldn’t go on, you did.
Turn your wounds into wisdom.
You have the answer. Just get quiet enough to hear it.
