Every person has a story. A different kind. And emotional kind, a breakthrough kind. When I was writing this poem I wasn’t thinking about anything else except all the events that made me think less of myself. I chased those who didn’t even care about me, for validation. It’s a perspective from a girl who was afraid to stand up, afraid to defend herself. At the time, I was this girl. During these last few months, I have experienced a major confidence breakthrough. It’s changed my life for the better, and forever. I hope every one of you finds your path, and love for which is your life.
