Let Me In
So I ran down to Chattanooga for dinner with friends last week and as I rushed out the door I grabbed this huge stack of CD's. I put in my Chely Wright CD and went back to the time that I had bought it years ago after a break up with a guy that just left me totally floored the song "Let Me In" just so spoke to me at the time the chorus: "Let me love you really love you. Open up your heart and let me in. I don't know who taught you not to trust. I'll be constant as the sun that shines above. Close your eyes and take the fall. If it's really love there's no risk at all. I can love you if you'll only let me in." I remember lying in the floor and just sobbing over the pain of this guy that just did not love me and I was feeling so sorry for myself and all pity me but this week it hit me who I needed to love me way back then was ME I needed to love myself. I was the one that needed to let me in. How far I have come and still how far I have yet to go. But I am not that same woman any more. I have learned to let myself love me more be happy with who I am and the turns my life has taken. I will never be done learning to love myself who ever is. But I have "Let Me In."
