i lied and said i was busy.
but i was busy.
not in a way people would accept as an ‘excuse.’
i was busy going through a massive end of an era.
i was busy discovering myself in not one, but many countries with people i had just met but would never forget.
i was busy meeting my soulmate, the love of my life, and muddling my way through the start of our forever.
i was busy losing my passion and disappearing so far into a depression that no one could understand because they all had their safety net, a guaranteed lifeline.
i was busy learning to love myself again after the world had forced me to feel anything but perfect.
i was busy revelling in my moment until i was told it wasn’t mine to live anymore.
i was busy. i still am.
i will not apologise for what this season has done to me.
you just have to deal with it.
