Today I woke up from my dream in tears. It was a dream about me moving out and I was saying goodbye to my mom last. Instead of a normal hug, she held onto me and rocked me back and forth. It was at that moment that I (despite being in my dream) realized that she really missed out on my entire life. She never got to watch me truly grow up. And now I was leaving. The first step in leaving forever. That was a crazy/saddening thought.
all i want is to be able to look in the mirror and love what i see…is that too hard to ask?
