I’m allowed to break hearts.

I’m allowed to say no. I’m allowed to reject someone because I don’t think they are good enough. I’m allowed to leave a place I don’t belong to, a place that tames me, a place that limits me. I’m allowed to chase my dreams even if it means we never see each other again. I’m allowed to say the truth especially when it hurts the most. I’m allowed to doubt you. I’m allowed to question your intentions. I’m allowed to look you in the eyes and wonder if there’s anything worth finding. I’m allowed to forgive you when I’m ready to. I’m allowed to let you in when you’ve earned it.

I’m allowed to wear my feelings fearlessly.

I’m allowed to get angry. I’m allowed to be upset, hurt, disappointed. I’m allowed to show you the crazy, the ugly, the sad, the madness. I’m allowed to live in the moment without caring about the consequences for once. I’m allowed to feel. I’m allowed to feel so much that there’s nothing left to feel. I’m allowed to feel so deeply that I keep on diving in an ocean of emotions. I’m allowed to be the kind of love I am and I shouldn’t be worried to show it. I’m allowed to destroy you with how much I feel for you. I’m allowed to scare you with the intensity, the complexity, the unpredictability. I’m allowed to be anxious, I’m allowed to be tired, I’m allowed to be numb. I’m allowed to need space and disappear for a while. I’m allowed to want more. I’m allowed to care. I’m allowed to have a melt-down. I’m allowed to cry until I run out of tears. I’m allowed to be happy for no reason.

I’m allowed to make mistakes.

I’m allowed to choose the wrong people. I’m allowed to go after what’s not good for me. I’m allowed to make bad choices, terrible decisions. I’m allowed to fail. I’m allowed to damage things, to break them, to ruin them. I’m allowed to learn. I’m allowed to grow. I’m allowed to be human.
