The Beginning of the End

And I just don’t get to walk away from the men, but I get to walk away from the loneliness, the lack, the scarcity.

Don’t mistake my intentions, this is not a cry for help or pity or even sympathy.  If that’s what you got, you totally missed the point.  The real point is freedom.  G.I. Joe said, knowing was half the battle, but I think he grossly under estimated the value of truth.  As I name my feelings and locate them, I finally see that they come from someplace. The thoughts and behaviors that they gave birth too are not simply manifestations of my DNA like I thought they were.  They are not me.  I can learn new ways.  I can have a different life.  I can finally shut the door on every man that didn’t serve me, that doesn’t deserve me.  And I just don’t get to walk away from the men, but I get to walk away from the loneliness, the lack, the scarcity.
