You asked me why I keep this chain around my neck.
It’s to remind me that no matter how far I run, how hard I try to hide or escape, my past, me emotions will ALWAYS chain me down.
It’s a reminder that I need to stop and face my fears. To stop and understand my feelings, rather than box them away.
A reminder that the more I run, the more the people that I care about the most get hurt.
A reminder that until I can do all of this, I will never be free.
