Today.

Today.

Today, I will not let you walk all over me.

Today, I will not listen to your lies, your manipulation.

Today, I will not let you make me feel bad for things I can’t control.


Today, I will not pretend to be ok with what you say.

Today, I will not let you get off with hurting me and others.

Today, I will not be “tolerant” to your hateful statements.

 

Today, I will not be your friend anymore.

Today I will respect myself. 

 

Because today, I choose to be a better person than you are.

 

Today, I will break the cycle. 

 

Because today, I will be stronger than you ever let me be.
