I thought i was strong to take on the world by myself ...
I thought i was strong to take on the world after the hurt ...
I thought i was strong by building walls around my heart ...
I thought i was strong because i kept my feelings of hurt to myself ...
I thought i was strong because i lived alone ...
I thought i was strong because i didn't depend on anyone ...
I thought i was strong because i could take everyone's harshness ...
I thought i was strong because i could express my anger in-appropriately ...
I thought i was strong because i could self soothe with my addictions ...
I thought i was strong ....
Only to find out that i was a child.

I know i am strong enough to break down the walls.
I know i am strong enough to deal with the overwhelming emotions.
I know i am strong enough to deal with the raw emotions.
I know i am strong enough to give in to the addictions.
I know i am strong enough to learn the intricacies of communication.
I know i am strong enough to deal with the disappointments of others.
I know i am strong enough to deal with the memories of devastation.
I know i am strong enough to deal with the shame and the burden of what i have done.
I know i am strong enough to deal with the anger i caused from my betrayal and deception.
I know i am strong enough to carry my hurt and yours by myself ...
I know i am strong enough to recover from the devastation i have caused ....
Only to find out that i am still a child.

Difference between knowledge that i am strong and actually being strong = vulnerability (definition: susceptible to emotional injury)!

(day of reflection on why i am unable to handle the venting - especially when i know what i need to do)
