Love Over Conformity

I Don't Care What Others Think

I speak of authenticity constantly.

My faith has shown me what true self-love is.

I have learned to let go of who I love.

Conversations that consent to self-disclosure are real peace.

When I sense judgment, I clam up.

I listen to all the ways I do not measure up to expectations.

I love talking about my emotions and feelings.

I realize I am not an oddball.

Deciphering differing opinions is where growth begins.

I want to be goofy, sappy, romantic, and confident.

Sincere, unapologetic, and open-minded.

Full acceptance is sharing my heart with loved ones

where complementing, encouraging, and adoring

them is a genuine expression of who I am.
