Criticism- an abstract concept that I must endure at times
The few lines of negativity that shake my self-esteem and break down my barriers
The expectations that I should fulfil, the thoughts of others consuming my mind.
It isn’t pretty and it feels like I can’t think and act for myself.
Those moments cause more harm than good, they are the moments that make me feel like I did nothing at all.
Those are the moments which make me reconsider why I do the things that don’t satisfy others but makes me cherish them like anything.
They make me feel safe and content by helping me to surpass any obstacle that is in my path.
But when they are punctured with a massive wound, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to stand up from the blow and move on.
