I don’t see myself the way others see me.

One day my stepfather Neil said I was acting like a child at a wellness appointment when I was calling my mother and I basically remembered him saying I filled out a form correctly. See when people say things about me I don’t just say what they say about me. I see myself as gorgeous and capable and just as good as any other person. I don’t see myself as better than anyone else. I love having the things I have and I really¬†like the woman I grew up to become. I’m the expert on myself. I don’t let other people define me. I’m going to be 37 in January!
