No Longer Allowed

I’ll shake the flak off my back
That you have been stacking there
For so very many years of conflict
Looking for teammates in your disapproval
Convincing them of my status of less than
But finally I have woken to this misbelief
That I am not good enough for anyone
Because that is the furthest from the truth
It has taken much soul searching
And hours of meditative sessions of healing
To fix the damage that I’ve allowed you to cause
Because of what you’ve said
But more
Because I permitted you the power of opinion
I gave you the strength to affect my mind
By the reactions I had to your words
Now I put that might in my own hands
Thanks for the lesson
But I don’t need that energy in my space anymore
I am worth more than that
I deserve better than that
And I eventually figured that out
