Ready, Set, Let Go

Transgressions
The past
"Get past your past," they say
The sense that everything is not quite right
Do I know?
Lost memories
Fleeting
Fluttering breath
Exhausted
Dark Circles
"She never sleeps," they say
The overwhelming fear that I will be found out
Begin to sleep
Breath slows
Paralyzed
Eyes darting
Sadness
Resigned breath
"I understand," I always say
The two words I have come to despise
The two words I use to let people off the hook when they have decided that my behavior is more than they can handle
The phrase that renders no response
The two words that give myself permission to accept that being alone is better than being in any relationship where I am not unconditionally loved
for who I am
Close my eyes
Exhale slowly
Ready
Let go

A neurological condition that is slowly progressing causing me to lose my memories, having sleep paralysis (a terrifying phenomenon) and dealing with mental health issues that impact others - I have accepted that I deal with this, but this is not who I am. If people are going to be in my life, then they must accept my whole being, which includes these things, or they are not worthy of being in my life.
