    Reflecting on a sentence I heard in a jobhunting related coaching session today... "do you know anyone who are scared of changing their situation for the better?" I felt like answering "Me, most of my life..." but I kept my mouth shut...

    Happily scared to be happy,
    Sadness and loneliness an old friend.
    Built an unstable home of the ashes,
    Of a past that burned that crumbled.
    Navigating by this map of scars,
    That adorns my thickened skin.
    It takes a monstrous courage,
    To shed just a layer of this...
    But will you promise to hold my hand?
    Will you pick me up when I fall?
    Could you ward off my worst critic?
    Drown out the voices of those that did not see,
    The road I took to get here?
    ... I know it's a tall order,
    But is my blind trust in you grounded?
