The brave ones are beautiful.
I’d like them to teach me how to risk what is safe, or how to set boundaries with the wrongs, or how to say “no” when it’s not a wholehearted “yes.”
Help me unlearn what I’ve learned, unravel what shouldn’t stay tied, and walk away, even when it will never feel comfortable, gentle, or right.
I have lived long enough now to know that bravery isn’t always easy,
and courage is something we cannot always contain.
