My newest adventure is underway. It has lead me to take up residency in a new blog,
Like the Feathers of an Arrow (affectionately known as LFA).

...don't open...don't throw away... is not disappearing completely (not yet),
but postings here will be limited.

0 Affirmation

An intense need has risen to the surface
a contradiction to who I am and my internal fears
the desire has taken hold of me
and I am at a lose to understand it fully
Compliments have been the bane of my existence
inevitably I find myself dwelling on the lie behind them
now I am consumed by a need for validation
my world seems to be falling in on me
emptiness festers within me
a need to feel whole for the first time overwhelms me
Why I look to others I cannot say
I should be looking within me
but so long I have spent trying to be whole
scared of what others might have to say
always hearing the opposite in their words
now suddenly I need them
to feel as though there is worth to my existence
