I struggle often with being different and now looking different. Most days, I shine right through it, keeping my eyes to the sun and letting harsh words or looks melt behind me. Some days, though, the words and looks cut too deeply. 

I make mistakes…

I begin again and keep giving my life my very best anyway.

I am imperfect and life is imperfect…

I love life anyway.

I wish I could share how much moxy it takes to go out and just be. At times, I struggle to remind myself that I can do this, that I have good to offer, and that there will always be more people who see that good than those who will devalue it. 

I hope I’ll feel comfortable in my own skin at some point. I just don’t today.
