Brick by brick.

I assemble my life.

No-one asked me too, yet everyone needs me too.

For whatever justification, they need me to conform or whatever.

Sometimes I just am deflated and cannot be bothered, but other times I appease.

The fact I am assembling for me, and not for anyone else is a big step.

A turning point.

I hadn’t posted once in the last 6 months on Instagram.

I never had a need to, no emotional response required it.
