Hopeless and lost for no absolute reason today.
Finding hard places to put harder things.
I’m 23, mom, wife, educator.
Gotta keep speaking the truth to myself: that I am valuable, worth good things, happiness, respect, the benefit of the doubt. I am more than negative words. Greater than these parts, with potential so much greater still.
I will always be more than the opinions of me, because those opinions are stagnant and I forever change. The further I go to create the dreams I have, the less those opinions describe me.
So, I don’t care. Why should I? I will surpass your opinions, those great words you write over my head. You are not my ceiling; you are not my boundary.
