'Alone Time'

if I go through life in silence today please do not worry ‘cause my thoughts takes preference over the jumbled words I might spew don’t feel like you are dismissed or ignored I sometimes need my alone time to work out what the meaning of my current struggle might be even if I don’t get my aha moment today I will feel better about it tomorrow even if I didn’t get clarity on everything today I need to do this In all the rush of life I don’t want to lose myself while being everything to everybody while neglecting and forgetting to nurture myself

oh goodness this is so true and real. I love the way you expressed this need without it feeling demanding or selfish, you make it sound like a warm bath and a healing silence.

It is so logical and still deliberately ignored causing a chasm between who you have become and what you really want to be

Love this, we need to look after ourselves sometimes. It doesn't feel right especially if we are giving people, but "Love your neighbour as your self" does mean some self help is OK. A wise poem

I totally understand what you're feeling. We need time and space, a sanctuary from all else, so we don't lose ourselves in the rush of life. Well written, Wilma.
