I Know Why

I know why I behaved the way that I did

Back then there was no stopping me

I hurt people that hurt me first

I should have walked away the first time they showed extreme disrespect

But any sentence that I start with “I should have” means that I am still judging yourself

And I cannot continue to punish myself for something I did not have control over

I know why I behaved the way that I did

And I forgive myself
