Not A Chance In Hell, People!

I am getting SO VERY ANNOYED with people who think they know better than I what's best for me without having a clue as to what I've endured.

Why Should I?

Why should I
Continue to hold on to something worthless
Just because I’ve had it for what seems
Like forever
That, in itself, is NOT a valid reason
There’s a word for those
Who hang onto every piece of junk
They ever came across – “hoarders”
And they are considered abnormal
Disturbed, sick
And yet there are some
Who claim to love me
PRAYING for me to remain
In a similar situation
Unsafe and unhealthy
Advising that I continue to live
Beneath my privilege, WHY?
Simply because that’s how it’s been
For as long as they can remember
Why should I
Desire to hoard painful memories
Struggles and heartaches
The emotional clutter
That should have been tossed out
Thrown away long ago
What purpose is it serving?
How does it benefit me?
I have many questions for those
Who dare to judge, who want
To weigh in with THEIR opinion
On MY life
Who feel I should continue
Wallowing in the trash heap
The most pressing one being

I have always found that Forgiveness ...Releasing others ... and choosing to move on with no bitterness in my heart... are the best solutions to life's problems whatever form they may come ashan .
God bless you

Trying to move on... the other person refuses to let go at the moment.

LOVERME, it is usually the ton of bricks which hits me that inspires me to write. Unfortunately, that is the case here.
