I've asked a lot of you over the years and you've mostly listened, but my needs have changed and I'd like you to adapt to the changing me. Here is my laundry list:
I need you to listen more to the quieter voice that is sometimes afraid to speak up. She has a lot to say, but can't always interject when necessary.
I need you to take better care of my body. The junk food is making me tired, and I want to have the energy to enjoy day to day life. Take me on walks and remind me of the blessing to have perfectly good legs.
I need you to see the mistakes I've made have come from a heart that is still healing, still learning, still growing...and accept my apologies.
I need you to free my mind from clutter that doesn't permit me to step outside, or let people in...or even get work done on a busy day.
I need you to intercept the dreams that hurt me in the middle of the night and haunt me throughout the day. I'm tired of living with them, seriously! Please re-wire my subconscious...everyone will be happier.
I know you're trying your hardest, so I ask these things in the kindest of ways...I need you to like me.
