Precariously perched on the ledge she found the freedom she desired. Free from the oppressive taunting she normally endured on the ground, she breathed deeply for the first time in perhaps her whole life. Like a vise being unwound, she found herself free from the shackles of other people’s expectations; finally free to have a moment of space, a moment of solace, from the expectations of everyone. They didn’t understand the word ‘no’. They were offended and hurt when she didn’t do their bidding, meet their needs, feed their expectations.

Now she is free. Free from the life that was.


Written for 100 Word Wednesday: Week 61

How to participate? A few guidelines as we begin….

  1. Simply check my feed, or search the reader, for the 100WW or tag #100WW, post each Wednesday. I’ll also be posting on my Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook Feeds.
  2. Write your submission on your blog, Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook Feed and ping back to the weekly blog post. Feel free to use the image provided or your own. Please do credit the artist whose image we use — Links provided 🙂
  3. I have not enabled automatic pingbacks due to a plethora of spam messages attempting to link up. Do feel free to also continue posting your links and I will enable your pingbacks as I check my blog. Thank you for understanding!!
  4. I’ll provide a Weekly Summary, or Windup, of posts on or by Tuesday; take the opportunity to read and comment on your fellow bloggers posts {keeping in mind to give each other grace and space}. I’ll try to read them all, but I can’t post your submission in the Weekly Windup if you haven’t posted before the end of the weekend but I’ll do my best to catch ’em all!
  5. Have fun! I enjoy reading your challenge submissions 🙂

      1. That it is! Being told you are free and feeling no constraints – emotional pulls – from others around you, both beloved and proximity, can be an endless search without boundaries. Thank you so much for your kind thoughts 🙂
