I don’t handle compliments regarding my strength very well. I don’t feel strong, I don’t feel brave, I don’t feel dignified or graceful and I think it’s because half of the time I feel like I’m a fraud.
Most of the time people see only the outer shell which is a smile, laughter and jokes. If I do my hair, my makeup and I wear my poker face just right, no one has a clue what’s really going on.
I’m a mess. I am a walking disaster. There is so much going on underneath the surface regarding my health that’s sometimes I have no idea how I’m still standing upright.
But at the end of the day, I want to be somebody who overcomes all of the obstacles and tribulations put on my path.
I want to be somebody who continues to fight and I want to find the silver linings beneath all of the heavy, dirty, messy hardships this life keeps throwing at me.
Life is hard and delicacy won’t be enough. I’m choosing to be fierce.
