I am talking to you, yes you!
You’re hiding behind unaccomplished dreams and broken promises, but I can see you clearly. It’s okay to stare at me with eyes masked in tears. I understand your unspoken words and I know I don’t have a right to judge you so I won’t.
I know you, the real you.
The YOU that isn’t trying to show-off as strong and confident. The YOU that is vulnerable and sometimes lost. The real you that wishes your life is more than it is.
Don’t turn away your gaze, look me in the eyes. I see the way you hold on tightly to your past until the present is lost and possibly the future too. Yes, I know you that well. You are naked but you don’t have to be ashamed.
I know how much you desire for your boss to recognise your efforts. I see the way you try to earn the respect of your parents and siblings. Your attempt to get the love and admiration of your friends and colleagues is not hidden from me. I am aware of all this and more, I see you as you truly are – naked!
Yes! You deserve more, you deserve to be happy, happier.
You deserve to love and be loved.
You deserve to have more money than you can spend in one lifetime.
You deserve to have the love of a faithful spouse and kids that make you proud.
You deserve every good gift, and you deserve it now.
The good news is that you just have to choose the future you want and go for it. You have what it takes to live your best life now. Stop complaining and go towards your goal.
Any future is possible, you just have to want it badly enough
