Perspective.

When I put on glasses for the first time I realized that you were supposed to be able to see facial expressions on TV. 
I had spent all of these years thinking I was bad at recognizing actors in films, 
When I was  just bad at seeing. 

When I entered a healthy relationship for the first time I realized that it wasn’t supposed to feel like you were always holding your breath. 
I had spent all of these years thinking that I was  “too much”
When I was  just choosing people who were never enough.
