rescue me, not

At some point we gotta admit
there's nothing seriously wrong with our lives.
And that rescuing is just a movie we like to play.
For example, the domestic abuse triangle:
victim, perpetrator and rescuer.
And the subtle shift of roles. 
After noticing how much time was spent 
"rescuing" others,
I quit 
and focused on rescuing myself.
That's when I noticed I didn't actually need rescuing
because there was nothing wrong with me,
Except thinking something's wrong with me.

Not that I am perfect,
but I am on my way to being more authentic,
and  kinder to myself.
Doing things differently?
It's possible...
