A post written by me (duh), for me.

March 30, 2009

I just wanted to take a few minutes to remind you… uhh me… of a couple of things.

That skin that you are wearing? The one that you worked so hard at scratching off for years because you thought it wasn’t right or there was something better? It’s starting to fit quite nicely. You even seem comfortable in it now.

You’re getting good at remembering that what you are on the inside should be reflected on the outside. All of it. No hiding or sugar coating. Feelings are called feelings for a reason.

That whole fitting in the mold of what others expect? Well you’ve done a fucking wonderful job of just tossing that shit out to the curb with the trash. Almost to the point of being a rebel. Remember, you’re 32, or 33. I forget sometimes. The days of fitting in? Should only apply to your God damn bra.

Speaking honestly? Well let’s just say that you do it, but that the delivery still might need a little work. Some polishing. Maybe not SO brutal sometimes… as the scared looks people give you? Might mean that you really, actually scared them. We’ll work on that.

It is not your responsibility to fix others. It is THEIR journey to take. You, as a friend; as a loved one; your responsibility is to provide unconditional love and support. A shoulder, kind words, understanding and maybe a tissue or a funny joke. YOU CANNOT FIX EVERYONE AND EVERYTHING. And to try to do that? Well, it takes away from all the work that you have done and continue to do for yourself. Remember that it is okay to put yourself first. Necessary sometimes.

Last but not least, don’t ever give up on yourself. Don’t sacrifice who you are, who you have become and what you want. For anyone or anything. You are worth your hopes and dreams. You are worth the hard work it takes to get them.

You. are. worth. it.

And you are the only one who says yes or no.

You. make. the. choice.

All in all? You don’t suck. And I’m proud of you for the progress you have made and continue to make. I thought you might want to hear it from yourself. Since you really matter. =)

Sorry for this post. Just needed some self-motivation. Thanks guys, love you all.
