It is vital to value yourself, your strengths and weaknesses no matter how big or small they may seem they make you who YOU are, no one else. Being able to see who you are as a person is one of the most loving things you could ever do for yourself. I am slowly starting to get to a point of bing able to love myself because honestly my whole life I hated who I was and loathed the the idea of possibly never being able to fully express who I really am.

I’am strong

I’am able

I’am fun to be around

I’am diligent

I’am a good parent

I’am a faithful friend

I’am hard working

I’am soft spoken

I’am open-minded

I’am quick to learn

I’am easy to be around

I’am caring of others

I’am quick to listen and slow to speak

I’am me

I’am a woman

Being able to write those strengths down and say them all out loud has given me a confidence I never had and opened my world up to endless possibilities, it has changed my life. Being “out” has brought me to a sureness that I have never had and so why would anyone want to try and take that away? Why would someone try and condemn me for pointing out my strengths and my true identity? My whole life I was told I could do better, I should die to myself, and Jesus would turn me into something beautiful. Except the thing is, being a human is beautiful. I look at my strengths and become emotional because those are pretty awesome, those make me who I am, a human being. So, be a human, be gay, be a lesbian, be transgender, be bi, be straight, be asexual, be queer, just be yourself because if we all could tap into our true identity can you imagine how much more beautiful this world would be?
