  • Hey you. This one is dedicated to you.

    When I am feeling down I just lock myself in and I push everyone far away. Find myself laying somewhere staring at the ceiling wall, flipping open my phone and closing it over and over again. Deleting your number and re-adding it. At this point I feel like no one can possibly understand how I feel besides myself. I constantly ask myself "What is wrong with you?" Tears try to push through even when I try my best not to cry; but it seems like tears don't seem to want to listen. This is when I flip the "I's" into "YOU's" and I think about you.

    Soaking in my own depression of all the what was, what should be, and what can be. I think about everything you said to me. "I'm sorry" "Just trust me" "Just follow my lead" "Just listen"

    And it happened. I tried to push away all my negative thoughts and fill myself with Trust. Trust In You. Confidence in you. That everything will be ok. Instead of laying there drowning myself in my own depression, it takes a lot. It takes a lot for someone to be able to stand up. Stand up for yourself. When the weight of a million pounds is weighing you down, you have to find the courage and just enough love for yourself to just get up, and continue. To do what you need to be doing, to enjoy what you should be enjoying.

    Hey you, this is what I wanted to tell you. You are right, I am better than what I have been lately. But so are you, your excuses for the way you have been acting doesn't justify forgetting the person you used to be, the role model I've always looked up to. You honestly can accomplish everything and anything you put your heart too. I've always been proud of you which makes me want to become someone you can be proud of. I think I see what you are trying to do now, and hey, I love you too.

    Here's my promise to you. I will love myself. I will live my life to the fullest. I will respect you in all your decisions. I'm starting from the beginning with you, because you are worth it. Whether or not we end up as friends or lovers I no longer care because I don't know the future but let's just forget the past and start from "Hello." "Hello my name's Teena, and I just want to let you know I'm back"
