My inner voice (my inner strength)

I have never been a popular person. I have had cool things happen to me in my 30s so far. I became connected to Edvige Giunta the Sicilian American memoirist and Professor of English at NJCU. Edi is such a sweet person. She cares about me. She just sent me a Happy Birthday wish on Facebook. I really like Edi.  I am writing a memoir I call Ayesha’s Story. The SZ Memoirs is the subtitle.  All of my life for whatever reason there were people that didn’t like me. Now I know if a person doesn’t like Black people they will never like me and I’m okay with that. I am 36 years old now. Whenever a person I am connected to in which I value the relationship I have to sometimes worry about the other people who are also connected to the person. I remember in my teens and 20s feeling like something was wrong with me but now that feeling is gone. Now I can say I really like myself. I just got some expensive costume jewelry for myself as a 36th birthday gift. Oh and I have a jewelry pick up at Zales the diamond store. I got name earrings on that say Ayesha.
