    Silent Goodbyes

    I use to think that every unsettling thought needed to be said
    And that it was always better to mend things that appeared broken

    I soon learned that there is a paper thin line
    Between compromising for love and compromising self love

    That it is not okay to keep sweeping things under the rug
    For the fear of losing someone

    I've grown to understand that choosing me doesn't mean I'm the bad guy
    And one of the highest forms of self love
    Is not waiting around for my feelings to be validated
    But silently saying goodbye to the things that no longer serves me
