I found myself seeking others,
Trying to find a solution,
Only to be disappointed.
Over sharing my thoughts as a cry for help,
Desperately holding back the tears.
Then someone answered.
It wasn’t a solution,
Not in the sense I was expecting.
But, those words ignited a flame in me,
An idea that I realised I was searching for all along.
“Rely on yourself”, they said
At the end of the day,
I know me better than anyone,
Therefore I know what’s best.
No one could help me,
Because I needed to help myself.
These words still ring in my brain.
And I am forever thankful to the person who cited them.
