New rule: If you’re not family and I cannot throw you (which would be everyone else), I don’t trust you.
I’m tired of trusting people I shouldn’t and getting burned because of it, so no more. Yes, my life will be lonely due to this new rule, but that’s not much different than it is now.
Better I finally get this down before it really hurts me.
I’m not a criminal, not a role model,
not a born leader, I’m a tough act to follow.

I spent most of today plotting out a breakup scene deep in the recesses of my mind. It’s because of this that my lips were even looser than I normally allow them to be. At least, that’s what I keep telling myself.
I’m not embarrassed about what I said (I keep telling myself that too); it was the truth. I refuse to let people take my words and twist them into something they’re not.
Say what you want. If asked, I will repeat what I said. And I will stand by it.
