I’ve Fallen Out Of Love With New York City

Never thought the day would come when my heart would stop fluttering for the city that never loved me back, even when I pleaded for a little tenderness, but here I am fully reconciling with the fact that New York is no longer the great love of my life.


It was an inevitable end to a one-sided quest for earned respect and acceptance, and while I did have glimpses of what it looks like to embody the hustle mode of a true New Yorker with evidential results, I absolutely don’t want to go back to that state-of-mind.

I’m not sure where I belong, but I know where I don’t want to be.

Nobody and nothing can show you more love than you can amass for yourself, and I guess that means you are who are, regardless of where you end up.
