z. of telling someone that they’ve hurt you.
y. of saying, “i dont deserve this, i deserve better.”
x. of telling someone, “you’re very important to me.” / “thankyou.”
w. of change. it always comes with an upside.
v. of saying, “i wish you’d stop drinking, i hate how you lose yourself after.”
u. of people. some arent as bad as others.

thankyou for reading.
almost four months ago, i started this list with two points and, after umpteen baby steps, we’ve reached here. i cannot explain how important this list is to me. these 26 bits and pieces make up some very important phases of my life. so, this is a list of things i’m mostly scared of, this is a list of things we are all mostly scared of. and i can only hope that there comes a time when we don’t have to be scared of any of these, anymore.
the last point (a) is open to interpretation.
if you have something in mind; fill it, complete it, finish it. it’s yours now.
