Poetry From Codependent Recovery

Some days there are just too many thoughts to think about. But this evening my recovering codependent mind seemed to settle after penning this little poem.

You see, once upon a time, I was a great contortionist. I could be anything anybody needed me to be. And I thought that was what I needed to do. Until one day I realized that I had to be honest about who I was and how being who everyone wanted me to be wasn’t actually helping anything. It was enabling everything.

And so somehow, on a day I can’t quite remember, I stopped contorting myself to fit into other people’s boxes. Because no matter how hard I tried, I never fit anyway. Instead, I allowed myself to feel how I wanted to feel and began listening to how it felt. And how I felt was free.
