I will not let you ruin me.
I remember that moment in 2013 when it did. I sat there at the tiny sushi place in the Castro.... she said "you really love her, don't you?" and I realized I did... and that I wanted her in my life so badly that I would do anything.... including slowly killing myself, destroying my heart, my soul, my self esteem, and my self worth.
and on that Sunday morning in Ohio, from the bed of #persephonevan, I realized that I would not let you ruin me.
I am worth so much more than you.
