Stop that Monologue

Save yourself the futile efforts of thinking about that witty retort that struck you a minute too late and made you the laughing stock of the school

Save yourself that confession which never found its way from your heart to your mouth
Save yourself the memories of those countless hours you spent curled up into a comma in the bathroom, while your guy/girl was out having the time of his/her life in alien arms

Save yourself those childhood flashbacks when you saw your mom getting beaten up and you were too young to make a difference to her predicament
Save yourself those countless times you re-ran that incident in your head. On loop. Thinking about a new comeback every time

Save yourself the constant hammering of not being thin enough, fat enough, rich enough, good enough, happy enough…

Save yourself
