Not Safe in my Own Skin

"Who are you when you try being everyone else's angel? Where do you run to when you realize the reflection in the mirror isn't you anymore? What will be your refuge from your own tears? When is it time to stop and decide to follow your own path? Why do you refuse to listen to your own words? Will you let life pass you by this way, you not voicing out the true you that's chained deep inside? ...yes, fear can do many things. ~ excerpts of my personal diary.


There are times in life where you feel trapped by your own self or you feel you are being held back by those that are around you. It's as if you put your own voice away for so long, trying to please everyone you care about that when it's time to bring her back out, she refuses to speak and hear herself out...

  5. Those words that you wrote are very powerful and I identify with you and think that you expressed how I sometimes feel too. Those questions provoke a lot of thoughts. I must admit that I often feel trapped in life and I have difficulty explaining this feeling to others but trapped is the word I normally use for it.

  10. Oh dear Sophie, I understand what you mean so well!
    Maybe way to well! It's like... you try to do something for yourself but you are trapped in the others wills.
    And then it's hard to run from it... But, well, I suppose we have to try harder!
    Hope you feel better soon!

    kisses

  14. Sometimes you just have to sit back, relax and breath and find yourself all over again. It takes time but you will eventually find yourself and will be at a better point in life when you do.

  17. Sometimes it is hard to be the real you. But if there is someone who doesn't like the real you, then they are not the best friend that you thought that they were. You should be loved only for you!
