It Took Me Years, But Today...„You should be grateful that I am with you, because nobody wants you!“
„You are so ugly that you should be ashamed to go out!“
I was young when I met the man who said those words to me, he made me feel ugly and worthless. I remember that I would walk looking at the floor, so nobody could se my face and I would wear long shirts to go to the beach. It was the time I felt worthless and didn’t love myself.
Yes, this was a long time ago...
Some obstacles of my life was not easy for me to get where I am today, I fought for what I believed, had perseverance, hope and courage. I have learned, maybe in a worse form, to be what I am today, someone persistently who faced everything without looking back, unafraid of changes, nor of the future. I am not saying that I have no fears, I have, and they are not few, but I „omit“ them. I try to face them, I don’t let them be an obstacle, nor let anybody to put me down like in my young age.
It took me years, but today...
I can look in the mirror and I don’t feel fat or ugly, but beautiful.
I have learned to be true to myself and dream big.
I smile, cry and don't omit anything of what I feel or who I am.
I see what is good for me, in the people who wish me well.
I can face the challenges of life, win or lose.
I go after my goals and my dreams.
I have joy and peace in my life.
I found the real me
and I love myself.
