Please stop trying to fix me, I am not broken.
Sure, sometimes I feel lost, but I am on a journey.
Though the path ahead isn’t always clear, I know I am moving forwards.
I can count my blessings thank you. I am well aware.
I know just what I have and I know it could be worse.
I know there are positives and yes, there are achievements.
But that does not make this go.
It is merely one step of many, that I will have to take.
I don’t ask you to understand, but you are minimising my pain
As if focusing on the good things can make this go away.
Ignoring is destructive, believe me I have done that for years.
Perhaps to you it seems, as if I am ruining my life
But reality is, I didn’t feel before. My life was utterly fake.
I have lived in turmoil, with competing sides of me.
I have repressed anger for years and years and years.
So no therapy isn’t ruining my life, it’s connecting me with me.
I know it’s hard to hear but the me you knew was not real.
There’s a me inside this pain and one day I will reveal.
I live the truth now, it’s no longer hidden from me
And though that brings great pain, there’s also huge relief.
There is freedom in reality, even if I feel like hell.
So please stop trying to fix me, though I know you mean well
I am not broken, I am just finding myself.
