When I was younger, I wanted to be anybody but myself.
I was under the impression that I was weird and basically didn’t fit in anywhere.
I had a couple of friends, but I still felt like a loner.
Do I feel that way now? Hell no.
So how did I get past this? I looked deeper to find who I am as a person and I’m growing each day.
I started looking at everything that made me different from everyone else and I used that to boost my self-confidence.
While doing that, I noticed that I’m very creative and I consider myself one of a kind.
There will never be another Lashaunta because I can’t be duplicated.
My creativeness and determination is completely different from anyone else.
Those things that made me weird are helping me become this happy person who’s turning every negative thing that comes her way into a positive.
Weird isn’t even a bad word to me anymore. It’s boring trying to be like everyone else. Being yourself is less work and you actually turn out happy in the end.
I’ve blossomed into a full rose out of the darkness that I was once in before.
