be ashes.

Ever since I was 15 years old, I have been trying to teach myself that I don't need a hero. 
I don't need someone to swoop in and save me. 
I need to save myself. 
I am literally never going to be happy until I can fully, confidently, 100% say that I am the only person I need. 
I have been trying to learn this for four years.
But today I realized that it's just not true. 
Humans were made to need other humans. We're not meant to be alone and stay that way.
It's not wrong to need help. It's not wrong to fall apart and crumble. It's not wrong to burn to ashes. 
It's wrong to stay that way. 
So ask for help. Fall apart. Crumble to the ground. Burn down. 
But rise again. Be a Phoenix. Find new life. Rebuild. And be stronger than ever. 

Life is hard, and ya can't do it alone.
