People can say what they want about me!

Ever since my 30th birthday I have been on a journey of self discovery and self acceptance. People sometimes say “Ayesha’s this” or “Ayesha’s that” but you know what I really like myself. I really love the woman I see in my mirror even though she is far from perfect she is me. I remember how I used to feel when I was a teenager so broken inside that I thought nothing could mend or heal me. Now I’m a different person. I accept myself and though a lot of people have opinions about me or just don’t like me I can say “so what I like myself” and that makes me feel happy. Nothing can rain on my self love and self acceptance parade, nothing! People have criticized me since I was a child. My childhood, my adolescence and my 20s didn’t stop me from smiling in the mirror after putting lipstick on in my 30s. I’m 35 right now!
