    Trying To Feel Worth It

    For my whole childhood, I have grown up with the idea that I had to prove my worth. I had to impress people- that was my job.  I worked so hard at that my whole life, that I have forgotten (or never learned) how to be me.  Now that I'm discovering for the first time how to be...

    Try To Be The Best Me

    but you know, I find myself thinking that maybe I am not trying hard enough. Good is one level, great is another and a whole new set of energies. I wish I had the energy to be great.

    "i Try To Be The Best Person I'm Capable Of Being"
