Step Forward, Step Back

I take one step forward

By getting off my antidepressant

And 4 steps back

By crying in my car after work.


I  take one step forward

By forgiving you and the words you said 

And 3 steps back

By not being able to forget


I  take one step forward

By prioritizing myself 

And 2 steps back 

By feeling selfish when I do


How can I progress mentally

If it is always 

One step forward, and one step back.
