What’s the cost?

As far back as I can remember I have been a free spirit. I even have a tattoo of bobwire with blood dripping and says “free spirit” in the middle. I march to the beat of my own drum. I’m stubborn, independent, driven, and focused. There are costs for being a free spirit tho. Yes, I did say costs.

I have been too stubborn to give the right opportunity a chance. I’ve been too independent to ask for help. I have been driven and lost track of what matters most. I have been focused and lost sight. I enjoy being a free spirit but sometimes I get a little bit lonely.
