Over the years, I’ve spent more time telling myself I wasn’t good enough. I’ve spent countless months, proving to myself why I wasn’t worth the effort. I’ve spent days and countless hours showing myself that everything everyone said about me was true. I refuse to spend another minute or second doing that again.
I am great, and my GOD didn’t put me here to fail or become something I’m not. I’m more then the jokes that are said about me and the lies that are spread to cause people not to like me anymore. I am worth more then any jewelry or car or any of those fancy things people run around trying to obtain.
I am original. I am creative. I am stronger then I perceive to be. My color or race doesn’t define me and neither does what gender I am. I am more then my past, that was just a chapter in The Book of Life that I related to, but it was never my life.
I can’t be who you want me to be, because Mr. West once said ‘Everything I’m Not, Makes Me Everything I Am.’ So accept me as I am, not for who you want me to be. I can’t be who you want me to be, but you can love me for my individuality. I am an individual because I know that I am different.
Today, I choose to be who I want to be, not because I’m stubborn and not because I’m hard headed, but because I love myself.
And because I love myself, I will always be me.
