There are several things that have brought me to my current self, and here they are.
My family:They molded me and gave me strength, my good looks ;), and the life I live.
The pain I’ve felt and the tears I’ve cried. They’ve shown me how to stay strong and that I can handle what life throws at me
The books I’ve read and the education I’ve received so far: I’ve learned important life lessons, as well as essential life skills in order to help me live successfully and happily. They have also given me hope that everyone will live happily ever after.
Food: Not only has it helped me to survive, it has also taught me to be open minded and to try new things before passing judgment.
I know it’s silly, but makeup has taught me a thing or two. It has taught me that there is nothing wrong with feeling beautiful, and that flaws are beautiful. Makeup does not exist to hide imperfections, but to enhance your natural beauty.
Music: Music has always provided a means of expression and escape for everyone. It’s shown me that it’s alright to ignore the world for awhile and be carefree.
Having friends has taught me that not everybody on this planet is out to hurt you, and there are people everywhere who love you and care about you. There’s no reason to give up on life.
The relationships I’ve had, the drama that’s come along, and the heartbreak that I’ve dealt with has taught me much about love. For one thing, the drama is unnecessary. When the love is real and it’s for an eternity…you’ll know. I’ve also been taught how to act and how not to act in relationships, when things should and should not occur, but then again…that tends to be a different experience for everyone.
Money has shown me the negative side of people. There is a horribly greedy quality of the human being that money just seems to excite. People will do anything to make money. It’s sadly our only means of survival. You can’t live with it, but you can’t live without it.
Laughter has shown me that life isn’t all about being serious. It’s a good thing to have fun, but there is a time to work and a time for play. Laughter also helped me to get through bad times.
The pets I’ve owned, and the 2 I’ve lost have taught me a lot. They taught me that family comes in all shapes, sizes, and even species. The loss of them has taught me that all good things must come to an end. My pets definitely helped me stay strong through a lot, and I love them dearly. (RIP gmoney and paw)
Being bullied has probably taught me more than I could ever learn in school. It taught me how to stay strong, stand my ground, how to forgive, and that you get what you give. It also taught me a lot about how people work. I’ve learned that in the end the only person who will take care of me…is myself, and I’ve grown out of the weak, insecure, scared individual I used to be, and I’ve turned into somebody free and confident…so in the end, I guess I have to thank those bullies for molding me into who I am today.
