sometimes you break your own heart
And sometimes you break your own heart.
You take a sledgehammer and shatter everything you knew.
You destroy your security. Your comfort. The little story you made, and the attachments you grew.
And you do it out of love.
Love for yourself. Because you deserve better.
Love for other people. Because they deserve better too.
