It only takes one person to say something horrible to make a person hurt. It only takes one person to call you “weird,” when they’ve never even had a conversation with you. One person to call you a “the freak”. One person to say you “look retarded”. One person to call you “troll face” on YouTube. One person to call you “fat”.
To the one person calling you a name, they are just one person saying one thing. But to you, its one person saying another thing. A collective catastrophe. A snowball effect carries on inside you.
There’s only one person that can choose to rise above it all, or sink down with it.
I’ve been dealing with this internal conflict since I was a little girl.
Of all of the things I’ve seen in my life, this is the hardest thing to overcome. All the names. All of the people who never accepted me, or didn’t even give me a chance.
Now I’m meeting all these fantastic people… and the only thing holding me back is myself. People are accepting me, and loving me…. so why are these words still floating in my heart? These words mean nothing. Those words are null and void.
I don’t live for those words to mean anything. I live to love. Love others and myself. If I want to love myself, those words have to die. Today, right now, I am burying them, and I encourage you to find the strength to bury the ugly words in your heart as well.
Strong. Independent. Intelligent. Funny. Caring. Those words prevail.
God made me, and He made me in His image. How can I hate anything he made? We are his amazing, beautiful creations.
Never put yourself down based on the foolish words of some ignoramus.
All of you: YOU ARE AMAZING AS YOU ARE! Love yourself, and show love to others
