knowing people have your back.
Acceptance feels like
it is safe to be yourself.
fidgets in my pocket,
long baths before bed,
knowing when I need time alone,
knowing my limits,
welcoming my intense feelings,
hanging with friends,
and knowing my interests are important.
Love means so many things
I am accepted
Love holds me
Love lets me be me.
