Do you wanna know something? I’m stronger than I seem. I’m wiser than I look. I’m honest and caring and will always be there for the people who are there for me. I am not who you think I am. In fact, I am more than who you think I am. I am me.
So I hate it when people assume they know me. When people assume they know the truth about every little aspect of my teenage life, because they don’t know the first thing about it. They don’t know what I go through on a daily basis, they don’t know the pressure I am under every second of every day. They don’t even know how hard I work just to gain the respect of people around me, even when I know they don’t care about me as a person. No one here knows what I feel inside, nor will they ever. No one in this town knows me.
Why is that, you say? It’s because I don’t want their sympathy. I put on a smile every day because I know that I am able to stand on my own. I know that no matter what, I have two best friends that are here to support me, whether the weather be rain or shine. I have people who love me for me, not the cookie cutter teenage girl I so often act as at school.
So the next time you see someone judge another person, or you overhear them poking fun at some silly girl for maybe being a bit too loud or a bit of a nuisance during class, think back to me. Because that silly, annoying girl may not be who she’s acting as. She could be hurting. She could be damaged. She could be heartbroken, tired, or lonely. She could be in the process of overcoming one of the toughest hurdles of her life so far.
So again, take it from someone who knows; Things aren’t always as they seem, especially when it comes to people. Especially when it comes to me.
Hello, gorgeous. :)
I just want you to know that you are so deserving of love from yourself. You are beautiful, you are unique, you are worth it. Don't ever doubt that. <3 God bless you, beautiful. :) Don't forget to smile today, you have so much to be thankful for.
The words “thank you so much” don’t come close to expressing how apprciative and thankful I am for this comment. I’ve been having such a crappy couple of days and this really helped me :’)
