Day six

full of promise

 

i promise to stop wasting time with people who don’t give a damn about me

to stop listening to empty promises no matter how promising they might be

or who they come from

to put my efforts and attention to where they are fully appreciated

 

i promise not to expect so much from everyone

especially myself

to celebrate every accomplishment

and not to forget how far i’ve come

and where i need to go

 

i promise not to hold onto everything for so long

and to stop feeling so sorry for myself when i do

not to make anything more than it really is

than it needs to be

that sometimes it’s best to just let go

 

i promise to restore my faith in humanity

and in myself

to remember to laugh

and to enjoy myself fully

 

and i promise to stop making promises to myself

to take control

and to not look back at the pain

unless i want to remind myself of how strong i’ve become
