    I enjoy myself very much.

    Not in a narcissist way. Very happy with what I have become and do and believe. Idiots call this arrogance and high ego I call it high self esteem Motivated And inspired

    A Journey, My Journey

    I may not always get along with what I do, may still be growing, but at the end of the day before I close my eyes "I Like Being Me". Adversity has a lot to do with that, but so do the flower, the sun rise and the soft rain....

    Yes Its True Now

    I always used to want to be someone else - someone who was visibly strong and could handle anything , with all the stress in the world on their shoulders and just brush it off. A successful business woman or a missionary or a politician or something exciting. Then I realised that...

    It's Just Me.

    I like the way I speak to others and how I lay my dealings with them. I have learnt my lessons and I have seen what could benifit me and which would stand to judge me, and which would justify me. And it has become to be my passion to read, listen to good speakers and learn...

    Don't try to change me into something I'm not

    because that will just push me away. Just accept me for me meaning flaws and all because what broke me has made me strong and wiser. Every bump in the road or challenge that comes my way. I take it head on attacking it 10 times harder than it attacked me. I try to stay strong...

    Why do people feel so pressured to change

    for society? It's just contributing to a huge issue of self acceptance - or lack of in today's world. Women are taught to be modest or they aren't respected; men are taught to be masculine or they are less of a man; children aren't allowed to express themselves outside of their...

    The One And Only Me

    I have learned to like being me. It takes a lot of self-reflection and self-discovery to realize that I can love myself for who I am. If you look around you, it seems like EVERYONE is motivated by the desire to have things that other people have, or do things that other people...

    I do not like being me all the time,

    but these days I do. It is amazing how sometimes I feel out of tune with the world, like a shark living in a small dirty pond, and others like now, everything flows, I swim in a clear stream.

    social anxiety and insecurity but I'm going to embrace myself for who I am and feel comfortable with it. I'm fabulous. Haters really have become my motivators.
