I sit somewhere between and on top of my own expectations for myself and the expectations others have of me. They overlap, but not in a way that wins the three-legged race. Instead, they cut into each other.
Slicing each other at the legs. They beat the shit out of each other until one wins.

I feel as though no matter where I step, I am letting one down. The way that I have learned to function has always pinned myself against myself…
Either way, one always loses.
