I Was Theirs

"I strived to be a great friend to those in my circle. Their biggest cheerleader, the first to crack a joke when things got a little sad, and the first to drown them with compliments immediately when they walked in.

Why?

I knew what it felt like to be vulnerable, rejected, an outsider, and never wanted anyone to ever feel the same way in my presence.

It took me years to realise that I was overcompensating through others because I didn’t want to confront myself.

I was theirs way before I wanted to be mine."

ESPAÑOL:

"Yo siempre apunte a ser una gran amiga para aquellos en mi círculo. La más grande animadora, la primera en tirar un chiste cuando las cosas se ponen un poco tristes, la primera en ahogar en cumplidos inmediatamente ellos llegan.

¿Por qué?

Yo sé lo que es sentirse vulnerable, rechazada, ajena y nunca quise que nadie sintiera de la misma manera en mi presencia.

Me tomo años darme cuenta que estaba compensado por medio de otros porque no quería confrontarme a mí misma.

Yo era de ellos antes de ser mía."
