It’s Okay

It’s okay to say “No, that’s not okay.”  It’s okay to walk away.

I’ve recently had to set assertive boundaries because of my mental health. I guess in some way you can say I went through an emotional cardiac arrest with someone who’s role is very close.  I’ve come to learn through my own experience, that those that cause you pain can be the closest to you and that characteristic alone of a relationship makes it hard to let go.  Because of current mental instability, I took it upon myself to check myself in the psychiatric hospital and take the time to pull the mental weeds & re-grow more through therapy.  Since then I’ve relied on support from my trusted “friemily” ♥ (friend-family) and taken time off work to get my mind organized.

Marns Motions Music Monday Playlist 10

“All I’m saying
You just take good care and
Leave me be see you
You will taste it, yeah
I get lost in the world in a day
All I’m saying
You got trapped in the world in a day
I wish I could be just like that
No love, no, no
I will never be, thank the lord”
– Meg Mac

My favorite lyric from last week’s Music Monday Playlist goes to  Never Be by  Meg Mac Continue reading “Marns Motions Music Monday Playlist 10”
