independence

Why is it that we fear those parts of ourselves we least understand? Why do we let others pre-define how we should feel about certain ideas? Strength is accepting the freedom we have and finding the distance needed to understand that the voices we listen to all have their own needs and wants; that no matter how kind and well-intentioned they are, no matter how professional and educated they sound, they cannot separate their own desires from the message they carry. No one can. The voice you most need to listen to is the one hardest to hear. Your own.

    You seem to be clairvoyant to all of our minds. Or perhaps, we simply all have the same issues that need to be addressed. Either way, thank You for reminding me that i do matter occassionally.
