Let Me Go

23 Jul

How can I understand if I don’t really listen?

I can’t hear when my own thoughts are drowning out your voice

I want to be a better listener

I want to be a better partner

I want to be a better friend

I want to understand what you are thinking

I want to slow down and hear

I want to make you happy

I want to be a better version of me

I want to stop saying that I will and start showing that I am

I want to live a life for others and not focus on myself

Lord I want to be what you want for me

Save me from my selfishness

Keep me humble

Please help me to stop putting myself first

    Hey there! I read your blog and I have to tell you that I sometimes feel the same way.

    I guess it’s a never ending process of trying but at least you were able to do the first step which is recognising it.

    Hope things will get better 🙂

      Hey Rach,

      Thanks! Yeah, self-reflection really helps me to see where I’m at and where I would like to be. One of the reasons I started this blog is so that I can look back at what I’ve written over time and reflect 🙂 I really appreciate your comments!

      Jessica
