I have worked SO hard to get to where I am today.
I have made my mistakes and learned some hard lessons from the school of life.
I have worked multiple jobs and have struggled so hard just to make ends meet.
I have been a victim and I have been a survivor.
I have met victory, defeat, and deep depression, but I refuse to give up no matter how hard it gets.
You may look at me now and judge me.
Find out what my age is and wonder what I have been doing with my time.
You may think that I do not have very much to show for my life and that I will always be stuck.
You may think that I am incapable of succeeding without help and guidance.
You may think that my time has run out and I should just give up…
The saddest part is that I have been my own biggest critic and these thoughts swirl through my mind on the daily.
Don’t minimize me or judge me and think that you have me all figured out…
I have my own story.
It took me 8 years to go back to school and that may seem like a very long time, but the fact is:
I AM HERE NOW!!!!!
I will not spend any more time with people who bring me down and make me feel less than I am.
And if that person is me, then I NEED to change.
