I have issues.
Issues with myself, and issues in relationships.
Can't deny it, so this is me admitting it.
I have a crapload of issues.
I'm severely insecure. I'm jealous.
I suffer from depression. I overanalyze.
I fall too hard after fighting to not fall at all.
I'm stubborn, and I'm pretty much always right.
I naively want the forever-kinda-love.
So that's me. And I've always let these things ruin me. Bring me lower, and blame myself for failures.
But y'know what? Fuck that.
I'm also pretty friggin' awesome.
I'm insanely loyal. I'm supportive.
I love deeply.
I'd give you everything I owned if it would make you happy.
I'm fun. I'll make you laugh until you can only cry.
I'll drink more beer than you, but you'll be amused by it.
I'll sit and watch the game with you. And enjoy it.
I'll be in my element at a concert with you. And you'll enjoy it.
I'll make you wonder where I've been all your life.
And I'll make you love me.
So if I've allowed myself to be beaten down by others in the past,
or to feel unappreciated and unwanted,
and just plain not good enough...
That's their issue.
We all have many flaws.
But I will no longer let you, or anyone, make me feel like less
because of mine.
