The Daily Cuppa

What is in a name? I used to like my given name. Not anymore.

I don’t feel any connection to it. It feels like it belongs to someone who is no more.

Sometimes I feel a deep sadness for the person that was. She suffered a lot. She bore a lot in silence.

No more.

Sometimes I hate her for not standing up for herself. For being so f*cking weak. For putting others' needs ahead of hers every single time.

But then I remember that a loving, giving nature is a gift.
