I can remember being told to always be careful of what I do because people will surely talk about me. I believed that all of my life. That’s why I always strived for “perfection”. “They will label you” they said 😏. Fortunately, that thought pattern is starting to diminish. People will talk about you- it is what it is. I’m really starting to feel the saying “sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt”. Things still hurt me- don’t get me wrong. But… I am not consumed by the thoughts of others. No longer do I ask myself- will the world be happy with my choices? Simply put- I NEED to be happy with my choices. I continue to strive to be a better me. Of course I am not perfect- as perfection does not exist. I make mistakes just like the next person- every single day. However, I am re-writing my story because I create my future- not the ones with an empty opinion. Feel free to share things which may enhance my quality of life- because I definitely have a lot to learn 😀.

All of this to say- it doesn’t have to be what it was…
