I am sorry too…

I am sorry for saying that I was okay when all I needed was comfort and company

I am sorry because I couldn’t defend myself and scream for help

I am sorry because I gave up on myself

I am sorry because I couldn’t stand up for myself

I am sorry because I kept it a secret for too long

I am sorry that I had to fake it all, all this time.

I am sorry that I had to get through it alone, like I had no one around me…

I am sorry for smiling for no other reasons than to hide my pain

I am sorry for thinking that I have deserved it and that I had something to do with what happened

I am sorry because I couldn’t report

I am sorry because I never had the support I should have had

I am sorry that I got weak

Or maybe was I just too strong?

I am sorry but I just got tired of being strong ...💔

  1. This line touched me on a deep level like you wouldn’t imagine, “I am so sorry but I jot got tired of being strong.” I have had my share of family and personal crisis over the past four years, and often had to be the strong one at home. That line describes exactly how I felt sometimes.. Thank you for writing it.

    1. We are humans and sometimes, we all get to a point where we just can’t take it anymore. So like I always say, it is okay to not be okay. So I am glad to see that my writing has touched you and let me tell you that I know how it feels. So I just want to let you know that you are stronger than whatever tried to break you. Much love, God bless ❤
