Didi`s not so secret diary

“But I was young
and didn’t know better
and someone should have told me to capture every second
every kiss and every night
Because now I’m sitting here alone and it’s getting really hard to breath because tears are growing in my throat and they want to break out, but there are people
and I just want to be somewhere silent
somewhere still
But still I don’t want to be alone because I’m scared and lonely
and I don’t understand
Because I was alone my whole life
My whole life
I was so damn lonely and I was content with that
because I liked myself and my own company
and I didn’t need anyone

I thought
But then there was you .. …

So, someone should have told me that love is for those few brave who can handle the unbearable emptiness,
the unbearable guilt and lack of oneself,
Because I lost myself to someone I love
and I might get myself back one day
but it will take time, it will take time.

This is gonna take some time.

I wish someone would have told me this.
Someone should have told me this.”

      The words just hit right in the heart…my favorite part is ” I liked myself and my own company
      and I didn’t need anyone
      I thought…”🤔🤔
