INever let anyone make you be something your not; its ok to be different. 37 and finally being myself! I built character through every struggle, I respect myself far more now then I every did in the past and I hold to memories that made smile. I will never let another person have that much control.
I don't have a lot things, I am always the one that gives, far more than I will ever receive. Yet people Judge me by a few writings, post and struggles. I've turn their hate, their judgment, into motivation ;I want nothing more than to succeeded! I will always have a heart for the broken, misunderstood, oppressed because I been there, still there but my rage is positive, I wear my crown of wisdom proudly.
If I walk this road alone without any cheers or supports with rocks being thrown at me, I will have love of knowing oneself! Leadership is not for fate of heart, you cant stand down no matter the cost.
Living in a generation where we are divided in so many ways, we must not forget to be kind to those who think differently. There is so much persecution going on and not enough love. Do something nice for someone.walk the neighbors dog that you know doesn't get out very often,take time at your local charities and show kindness to people who dislike you or have different views on life.
I have felt the love of strangers in my darkest hours and I have also felt the hate of others in my darkest hours but hate, never consumed me because i knew there where good people out there,Humanity was not a lost cause.
In January, I was diagnosed with major depression and couple of anxiety disorders but I have know for long time that my struggles where not because I didn't suck it up, my issues where real! Everyday life was/is challenge but I continue to heal with therapy and medication. I didn't want people to know about my mental illness because they stereo type you, act different to you or they don't believe you. I have learned that people are scared of anything that society says is not normal and my friends have been the outcast the misunderstood and the strays (my animals), their the sun that shines on me while society points their fingers at me, their the reason I smile and haven't given up. I fight depression everyday that A**Hole wont leave me alone!
