It’s a tiny little word that helps me keep my boundaries intact.
I don’t have to explain to anyone why I think what I think, why I write what I write, or do what I do.
I do not have to defend my Self.
I do not have to defend my choices.
I do not have to heal the way you think I should heal.
I don’t have to fix anyone else.
I don’t have to let anyone try to fix me.
And it’s amazingly liberating.
