I’m tired of being the one to step up and mend the cracks.
They formed because you keep on leaning on my mind. Taking pieces, slice by slice, like a greedy person.
Like anyone else, I need time to myself too.
I have days where I do nothing, and that is great for my mind you keep harvesting pieces from.
When I felt I needed you, you, my friend, vanished during my time of dark nights and blue days.
For the sake of my sanity, I will not cater to your selfish needs. When you need me, you cry, scream, and act as if ED209 is coming for your head. But, I forgot, our world, sorry, my life revolves around you.
No, I will not be the one you use.
No, I will not be the drain for your issues.
No, I will not answer a call to hear complaints and no positive action.
It is inevitable that for humans to progress in this life, we need to help one another. However, it will not come at the cost of any detrimental impact on my mental health.
Don’t be afraid to say, ‘no.’
Remember, you are a Queen and placing yourself first is perfectly fine.
Be confident and know that your mental health matters.
Live a healthy life.
