Choosing Need

I am shit at not doing what I need to do and great at doing what I want.
Last year I came to learn it,
this year I attempt doing it.
Situations where I need to make the choice that I need to.

I have to say that it hasn’t felt as freeing as I thought it would. Yes, there is some weight off my head and lightness in my heart, but there’s still this deep dissatisfaction.
That I let someone down. That I couldn’t be all that they envisioned me to be in their life.

I wonder if the more I choose to follow my heart, the less I’ll worry about keeping peace with people. I hope so because doing what I need to do shouldn’t be so difficult.

    I have recently came to a realization, finally(at age 62). I can’t be the person I want to be for those I love until I reach for what I need first. By attending to my needs I’m becoming the person I’ve always wanted to be. Don’t hesitate. YOUR NEEDS MATTER! Those around you will be better for it, also!
