I can move to new cities
Travel all over the world on my own
Eat dinner and go to the movies by myself
Take care of myself and be financially independent
Yet, I’ve been told – don’t be needy. No one likes someone who is needy!
So, I’ve tried to live in opposition to needy.
I’m strong, I can solve all my problems, I’m a rock, I can do it all on my own.
Don’t be vulnerable, done need anyone. Who cares if I’m lonely.
Dammit, do not be needy.
But now I’m tired of being the rock and going it alone. What the hell is wrong with needing someone. What is wrong with wanting someone to need me?
So yes, I am what I am most afraid of being. I don’t want to go it alone.
I am needy.
