Damage repair

Through the past two years I have made one decision that has changed my life One decision to walk away and end the strife Though times were bitter, they were also sweet I chose not to accept defeat Many people walked away Those of many who claimed to stay In a time of crippling anxiety I had to work on my propriety I had to realize I endangered my mental health By condemning every inch of myself Trying to do what others thought best I had laid my soul to rest Being a shell in an existing world I watched as insanity swirled In a time where I had become toxic I knew I had to leave the feeling of being boxed in Becoming distant from the world I knew And keeping in contact with very few I started to repair my soul Against the damage that took its toll For those of you that stuck around I’m forever grateful for your sound

Krystal, taking that first peck at the shell that keeps you trapped inside a place you don't want to be. You took that peck and set yourself free. Courage to persevere, now keep going.
