It is those who truly love us and allow us to express ourselves authentically while accepting us fully who feel like home.
Sometimes people will make you feel at home
While others times they will make you feel
More alone than ever before.
On the same page
They do not have ownership
Over you and your life.
And you can choose
Not to build a home
Create an identity
And forge a future
Based upon those
Who broke and battered you
As you are ultimately in charge
Of your own destiny
And who you wish to share it with you.
You can instead choose
To redirect your energy and attention
Towards the people
Who are aligned with you
And are able to actively show up for you.
To hold onto the people
Who truly listen to you and care about you
To hold onto the connections
That help you feel more connected with yourself
And aligned with your purpose and goals
And to hold onto the moments and memories
That are special and precious
Where you are able to be fully present with others
And heard, appreciated and understood.
Because there will be people
Who allow you
To open yourself up
And express yourself fully and vulnerably
There will be people
Who help you grow more in touch with yourself
And the essence and core of your identity
And there will be people
Who celebrate and embrace you fully
And these are the people
Who feel like home.
