There was a time in my life, when people told me that I was good for nothing and that I got what I could get but I thought I could deserve it slightly better. People judged me by their perspectives, and they did not know me and made me to feel like I was not worthy of anything. They had motivated me to believe that I would never be happy, and I should accept what I got from them by their mercy. Eventually, they couldn’t have been more wrong. They do not know me though I appreciated their judgment.
Perhaps, all good things have endings.
But I am trying to take back my energy and trying to divert my way of life in a destination. I know who I am and what I want, and I will accept nothing less. And I am trying to know myself appropriately. I am slightly good enough, kind of worthy and deserve to be happy.
I am standing up and letting my voice to be heard, and trying to tell them that actually I don’t care but I respect their opinions. They do not know my struggle-they do not know where I have been or what I’ve overcome or never asked me how was I?
They do not get to define me or my worth.
I am seeking for them who will respect me unequivocally and will help me to fulfill my dreams. This is my time and my choice, and I choose to be more. I do not have all the answers and I will still stumble and fall, but I will always do it by my own terms.
I’ve failed but I’m not a failure. Circumstances are compelling me to be a failure anyways.
I’ve been lost, but I’ll find my way. But I promise to myself that I will not settle, I will not quit, and I will never expect anything less than the best.
