Writing is something I really enjoy. I like putting my thoughts and feelings down on paper. I realized my dream of becoming a writer. I am grateful for what I have. I find more things to be grateful for. I am more myself after years of blogging. I remind myself that I am a strong person. My faith in God grounds me. I am sure God hears my prayers. I am happy I have my family and friends in my life. I will not withdraw. I will face my fears. I will try to face situations and confrontations and not run away. I have issues in my life. Everybody has issues they face. I became comfortable in my own skin older. As a little girl, I was bullied a lot by other girls and sometimes boys. Kids would tease me badly because I am dark brown in complexion. I try not to talk about colorism too much. It makes me uncomfortable sometimes when people say I am too dark. I feel very comfortable older with myself the way I am. I find it to be strange that people try to change their appearance. There are so many otherwise attractive people that try to change their appearance. I would make the case for becoming comfortable with yourself just the way you are.
