One day I woke up
and we no longer spoke
the same language.
I haven’t heard from you since.
Hishaam Siddiqi, ”
Where did you go?”
I have been described by you, for hundreds of years. And now, I can describe you. That’s part of the panic.
Stop comparing where you’re at with where everyone else is. It doesn’t move you farther ahead, improve your situation, or help you find peace. It just feeds your shame, fuels your feelings of inadequacy, and ultimately, it keeps you stuck. The reality is that there is no one correct path in life. Everyone has their own unique journey.
I am a woman that likes playing with fire and you are a match that won’t light.
