The truth is, I can't change how things have gone in my past. I can't change the way I've acted nor the way others have acted towards me. It's easy to say that these things are just going to be a part of me and that similar situations are going to have the same results. It's easy to fall into habits of sadness and low confidence. It's easy to tell myself that I'm not worth it.
It's times like this, when I feel as though I've fallen under the spell of looking at my feet instead of forward, when I need most of all to pull out every ounce of effort I have and put it towards looking up with a smile. I am who I am because of the things that have happened to me. I am a woman with a bright future, I am above the things and people of the past. I deserve happiness because I know I am worth it.
I am worth it.
