“I feared disappearing from the liberation I’d gained abroad.”

A timeless, relatable piece by Third Sis, written years ago, unearthed (yet again) this morning;

“I feared disappearing from the liberation I’d gained abroad. I feared that my personal metamorphosis or whatever freedom of the soul I’d achieved when I was alone, away from the expectations and noise from my immediate world, would be taken away. It was such a borrowed time, I knew that before I even began, but what would I give to extend forever? After years of wanting that quiet solitude, of wanting to be that girl I’d always known I was inside – loner, detached and unattached, above all free – now I’m back here, suffocating, trapped, and in conflict beyond my wildest dreams with the love for family, for my country, and my religious grounds.”
