I Am Not Who I Was

I'm Not Who I Was 223 People

    I Am Stronger Than You Will Ever Be.

    "Or why cinnamon is as delicious as it is..."

    My parents loved me very much and they still do. When I was in kindergarten I was their little sunshine, their little princess, their little everything. But because of all the bullying in school (see my other story on my profile) I've changed. A lot. When I was small I was always...

    Changes

    I change rapidly as I grow as a human being. I learn life lessons very quickly and rarely repeat mistakes I have made or have seen others make. I'm pretty observant, so it's easier for me to learn from others. I am a completely different person in many ways from who I was...

    I don't know if any of y'all have heard this song by Brandon Heath. "I'm not Who I was"  It really hit home for me. There are people from my past that I haven't forgiven .(not really) Then there are those that I need to ask forgiveness form. So I began writing...
