I recognise this feeling. It's the one I get when a decision I've taken has a direct and often negative impact on another person.
I'm just about ready to head back up north. My jaunt down south visiting a dear friend has just about run it's course and I've never longed to be in my own space as much as long for home right now. Yes I know I said I'll stay up until the weekend - myopic of me clearly.
As bad as I feel for upsetting a dear friend, I'm still not going to change my mind. I decided a short while ago that I will no longer continually lay myself sacrificially at the altar of 'make everyone else happy but yourself'. It's time I begin to practice what I preach.
Sometimes the girl who's always there for everyone else needs someone to be there for her. This is me right now.
The rate at which I get through bridges, there'll be none left for me to burn very soon.
I hear you calling leeds, mama's almost home
