The Better Me

You see something in me that I don’t see in myself. Maybe I’m too smart for my own good but can’t be that smart because I’m not making the right choices. I’m coasting and you’re pushing. You’re pushing me too see what I could be, you’re pushing me to become more than I think I could. All I could do is thank you but not thank you with just words because words are words and they mean nothing. I have to show you I hear you, I have to show you you’re not wasting time, I have to show you that I can potentially see the light that you see. I can no longer be a waste of talent. I can no longer be what I am now. There’s so much more that I could do. You want me to make goals little do you know I have them but they’re stuck in my mind so I guess I don’t. You push me to be more than I am now and for now I’ll say thank you but I’ll show you thank you more with my actions.

Having the right people in your circle can change your life for the better if you let it. Allowing people to see that you’re flawed and allowing them to show you what’s right. The push and pull game because you want it you’re just afraid to get it. One day, it comes down to how bad do you want it? Do you want it bad enough that you’re willing to lose yourself to find the better you?

Going in a downward spiral until it all makes sense. Facing every fear realizing that you were silly for being afraid in the first place. How could you be afraid when I’m sure you faced something so much worse?

Having to give yourself the credit that you truly deserve. I had to realize that I needed and deserved so much more. In allowing the right people in my corner it made me want to be better, not for them but for me.

But I will forever be grateful and thankful.
