She contemplates should she stay and face her demons?
She has come to the crossroads of her life.
She can’t any longer avoid her feelings.
She accepts the things she dreads she must face…
She is ready to admit she isn’t the outgoing, confident,
the lady she always seems.
She confesses she is insecure and sensitive at times.
She acknowledges she doesn’t have it all together, and
She admits she fights off stepping in her shell
She also faces her challenges of feeling of abandonment,

She takes off her mask, and
She faces Herself.
