For the first time
I am giving up.
It doesn’t mean I am less brave or that I have grown weak. It doesn’t even matter that my sanity is no longer intact.
If giving up means I am surrendering it to the high heavens. Take it away.
If it only means it gives me more room and energy to preserve what’s left for Mio. I will do what it takes–even giving up–just to keep me therefore the only person Mio has.
I give up.
