Let Go

Let Go

A Poem by gabiaimee

Empathy is letting yourself drown so that those you love may breathe. It’s taking on battles you have no business in fighting, just so that no one has to struggle alone. It’s being alone " handing yourself out in bits and pieces until there’s nothing left for you.

Empathy is not something you can keep up forever. It is healing, it is helpful, but it is not kind to you. For your sake, let go. Let go. Let go.

Pick your own battles before you aid someone else’s; these are not your wars to win.

You are not uncaring for caring for yourself. You are simply doing what you were put on this Earth to do. We are born into this world alone, and we will leave it the same way.
