I have been.
I have been polite, patient, understanding, unselfish, considerate, compassionate, friendly, helpful, and gentle.
I have ‘let things slide’. I have ‘made allowances’. I have ‘bitten my tongue’. I have ‘sat on my hands’. I have ‘taken the blows’. I have ‘remained calm’.
Why? Because I know myself. ‘Know Thyself’ is not just a saying, it is a skill I have learned and mastered over the years. I know what I am capable of. You don’t. Oh no. You don’t.
And I have kept so many of you shielded from the part of me that I keep caged safely behind the bars I constructed to keep everyone oh… so… safe…
But, when you’ve been
And pushed in the way I have been? When you have to do everything yourself while others sit on their fat fucking asses with their hands out waiting for you to do it all????!!!!
BACK THE FUCK UP RIGHT NOW!
RIGHT FUCKING NOW!!!!!!!
I AM NOT SUPERWOMAN AND THESE BARS ARE ABOUT TO COME LOOSE! I AM TEARING AT THEM RIGHT NOW BECAUSE I WANT TO GET FREE!
That’s never a good sign.
So why don’t you go and stand over there and listen to this elevator music…
while I try to get myself under control? If these bars give there will be nothing between me and your throats and, while you may think ‘Awww, how cute. She’s mad right now’…
