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.
I started looking at my flaws that made me different from everyone else and I used that to boost my self-confidence.
*my self esteem was horrible when I was younger.
While doing that, I noticed that I’m very creative and I consider myself one of a kind.
**YOU SHOULD TOO!
There will never be another Lashaunta because I can’t be duplicated.
**NEITHER CAN YOU!
Those things that made me weird are helping me become who I really am.
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.
