I started seeing the world a little brighter when I realized I have a voice.
A voice that is unique, important and lovable.
I thought for a long time that my opinions didn’t matter. Never stood up for myself.
I let the world walk all over me if like I didn’t exist.
When you don’t give yourself a place amongst others, it’s just as bad as disappearing into a cloud of mist.
If you don’t scream, voice, yell, tell, ask, speak, everything will just be silence.
I didn’t want to live in silence anymore.
I was living in my own thoughts, wondering why I couldn’t voice what the world needed to know.
I lived in a world where I just never defended myself.
When I spoke and decided to be me. To stand up for myself, to put me in a place higher than before… the world made sense.
I am not someone who can be walked on.
I don’t have to walk on eggshells.
I am me.
A beautiful, loving, curly-haired human being.
And if I must yell, ask, tell, scream, converse, speak, I will.
My voice matters and so does yours…
