Maybe I Am A Loner

“People call me a ‘loner.’

I just say I’m happy and safe in my own company.

I spent many years trying to fit into a box that others wanted for me.

But I’m finally happy doing my own thing, and without needing to justify it to anyone else.

Being someone I wasn’t affected my mental health so badly. It just wasn’t worth it.

Go and be you, because you is just how you were meant to be.”
