we can only get so much from someone else

© amy winehouse, “help yourself”

basically.

just cuz i look like i have it together, it doesn’t mean i actually do have shit together. & if i do in fact have shit together, it doesn’t mean i wanna help you get yours together. sorry.

** the clarity edit:

. . . if i do in fact have shit together, it doesn’t mean i’m obligated to help you get yours together. it’s this simple: if i see where i’m needed, i’ll pitch in. but if you’re chillin hard without my input & don’t seem to have enough good sense to work at improvement of your situation, i’m staying right where i am. sorry.

    girl i don’t even know how to express the way i felt when i wrote this. i’m very much into helping myself as much as i can, then leaning on other folks. i might be wrong for it, but it feels all the way right. lol.

    i owe you some loose leaf tea & a giggle session.
