I sold my soul in turn for love
More from you I need
Too much giving, barely receiving
Look at my soul as it bleeds —
out of my body, no “me” in me left
I’ve given you all within
I’m dying inside, I have to let go
and breathe life into my soul again.
At one point in my life, about four years ago, I fell into a SEVERE depression. I had a breakdown. I talk about it a lot on here. It was what began my spiritual awakening journey. I think there were many reasons to it but the biggest was I wasn’t being true to myself. Everyone else’s needs and voice were more important than mine. I would give and give and give to others, do my best to make others happy, but I wasn’t doing the same for myself. That breakdown forced me to turn to myself and God. To give myself love. BALANCE & BOUNDARIES are very important. I know now when I’m beginning to feel burnt out, I need to come back to myself. Take care of myself. Speak what I feel. Do what makes me happy. Your needs and your voice are important. You deserve happiness too.
