It’s okay to be YOURSELF!

When I think about being the last little girl picked for gym or group in elementary school and middle school or my experience in high school and college and what it’s really to be me I always advise other women to remember it’s okay to be YOU. Sometimes when you are the last to get picked you start to feel bad but I feel really good about myself despite that. I learned to love myself and accept myself and I think that’s an accomplishment in itself. I have SZ but I thank God it doesn’t have me.
