FORGIVENESS IS MY CHOICE

when you go to therapy,
you start to close doors from people who left them open.
the ones who you hoped would walk back inside.
some of us carry a lot of burdens from folks in our pasts.
it shows in how some of us treat people now.

“If you show up and show you are good at the position,
they will most likely hire you.
I got hired for my job and I started out as a temp.”

looking back,
it came off as pick me behavior.
some jobs i got were legit temp for like a few days,
