Five Minute Friday - limit

Every Friday we unite for five minutes. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on limit.

I reached my limit and left your home.
I set off on my own, ready to take this world on.
I had been planning and planning for so so long.
I knew what I was doing.
I was prepared.
I was ready.
I was scared as hell.
But when limits are reached, something somewhere else propels you, decides for you, and off I went.

I reached my limit and said goodbye.
We had been hurting each other more than building.
I missed you, I cried for you.
I thought of you so so often.
I knew I made the right decision, but I couldn't shake you or us.
I felt you everywhere I went. I was consumed.
But when limits are reached, something somewhere else propels you, decides for you, and off I went.

I reached my limit and left my career.
The one that raised me.
The one I loved down to my toes until I didn't.
The one that defined me, until it was too unhealthy to keep going.
The one that built me, and made me feel whole until I was missing.
I cried for us.
I couldn't believe I was considering this.
I was scared.
I was worried.
I was getting sick staying so I left.
Because when limits are reached, something somewhere else propels you, decides for you, and off I went.

I reached my limit, our limit, and said goodbye.
I didn't realize it was building but you did.
I didn't realize it was needed, but you did.
I was and am lost and devastated.
I had to learn to pick myself up, off of the floor.
I had to learn to start again, without us.
Because when limits are reached, something somewhere else propels you, decides for you, and off I went.
