I am not perfect, but since when did one need perfection to be successful?
I was born with a learning disability called auditory processing disorder.
However, that didn’t stop me from completing my education and earning my college degree.
I developed bipolar disorder when I was around 10 years old.
Yet, I am now stable and prepared for my mood swings with the perseverance and motivation within me.
I don’t make or keep friends easily due to my unusual personality and personal conflicts.
However, the friends who have stuck with me throughout my development are all I’ll ever need.
I hold a lot of weight on my shoulders, like guilt and responsibility.
Yet, it makes me feel empowered and confident in myself because it proves just how much I’ve been able to overcome.
No matter what you feel now or what you’ve done in the past, it is up to you to overcome the conflict and forgive yourself for any past transgressions. Your family and friends may be your best support, but they are not responsible for your emotions or actions.
If anyone is to create a change, it has to be you.
Push yourself to improve your situation in any way possible because without your motivation for positive change, there won’t be any.
As the wise man, Dr. Seuss, once wrote:
Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot,
Nothing is going to get better,
