Out the Blowhole

Humpback WhaleI tend to lose myself in others.

My empathy devours me. Swallows me whole, digesting me with every person’s unkind thought and every stranger’s cold dismissal. Whenever I manage to claw myself out of its belly, I find a bit of me is missing.

This has got to stop. I am not Jonah. My heart is not a whale.  As silly as it sounds, this is my current battle… and I am exhausted from it.

Until tomorrow…

Chloe
