Yes, I get that we can’t change everyone. Today I treaded in dangerous waters and gave someone I love an opinion. I expressed my worries and was gently rejected. I hadn’t planned on doing such a thing, but beyond my control the words were tumbling out.
The MisterWives have this great song Best I Can Do. It’s become my recent go-to “Fuck You” song. Even though I’m not sure that’s what it’s for.
The lyrics are great and relatable to anyone that has worked their ass off for someone and it’s still not good enough.
It’s the best I can do. Nothing is ever good enough for you. Easy on my tires eyes. They’ve been up all night cause my mind is tied.
We’ve all been there but today I really felt the physical stress of carrying someone else’s worries. The need to help overpowers the need to walk away and it drags me back kicking and screaming. I am thankful to writing as an outlet for it has soothed the crook in my neck and headache from earlier.
I’m tired. I put myself out there a lot and I tend to get bitten in the end. It is time to say I love you and walk away. I’ve given you what I can but its truly up to you now. It’s the best I can do.
