When I was assigned this prompt a couple of weeks ago, I thought I knew the answer and had my post written the first day. Then came the words…….
If you could be famous what would you do? Would you be an actor, athlete, etc?

Words that were said with love, yet cut me to the bone. The one saying them not realizing just how much they hurt, the lack of understanding while #MiracleMike and I are struggling to make a decision that will impact us for years to come. A decision that will impact his mental health, which is just as important as his physical health. Feeling like what little joy we have and were looking forward too has been stolen.
After that came the words that destroyed my soul, from one of the people that should love me best. The names called, the accusations flung will reverberate in my heart and soul until, well, forever. No taking them back and no saying I’m sorry, nothing will make them leave. They’ve been said. To me, about me. They were meant to hurt me, confuse me and make me question pretty much everything I’ve ever thought I knew, what I’ve always believed to be true. The words did all of that and more.
Now come the words that began the healing process for me. Words that have helped me begin to see that while said to me, about me, they were really the person that said them describing themselves, their dissatisfaction with their life and the way it’s played out. Looking for someone else to blame for their unhappiness. Thinking I am in a weakened state and using that to weaken me even further.
The words that have helped me see that it’s not about me. The words said are not me, who I am, where I am in life, where I’m going, if anything I am the exact opposite of the accusations made, the names called.
So to answer the question, if I could be famous, what would I be? I would be a writer with the skill and knowledge to say the right words to someone that will make them laugh, cry, think, give them a smile on a bad day. give them hope when theirs is waning, be the lightness in their dark.
