GRANT ME THE SPACE TO BE HUMAN
Grant me the space to be human.
Grant me the space to fall short, to mess up, to fail.
Grant me the patience you would a small child… or the kindness you would a bird with a broken wing. Grant me your understanding that I am in pain, too.
See me as I am.
I am not what you see inside you.
I am not the trigger you feel.
I am not the awe in your eyes.
That is you. It’s always been you.
Don’t project yourself onto me bc I am living the life I want to live, and you have chosen not to.
The life I’ve chosen has also come with pain..
And suffering beyond your wildest nightmares.
And honestly, I am just a human. Having a human experience. All of the comparisons and contrasts that are put onto me are not mine. All of the expectations put on me are not mine.
What you see in me is not mine.
So please, remove me from your expectations. Remove me from your pedestal. Remove me from your envy. Remove me from your judgment. Remove me from your projections. Remove me from your hatred. Remove me from your awe.
Remove me from seeing me as anything than just human.
Grant me that space, please.
Grant me the space to be human ♥️
